What should I do if I'm in a car accident?

If you’re in a car accident, first and foremost, try not to panic. Make sure to stop – never leave the scene of an accident. Check yourself for injuries and if any passengers, check on their well being. If in any immediate danger, get yourself to safety immediately. Call the police, or if you are unable to, have someone else contact them – even if it’s a minor accident – and file a report. If in an accident with another person, exchange information including insurance and other personal information.
