Auto Accident Checklist
If you’ve been involved in a car wreck, use this checklist to make sure you’ve taken the right steps after your accident:
See the doctor.
If you are hurt, make sure you see a doctor. It is important to get treatment if you are hurting or are having problems. You also need medical documentation of your injuries.
Take photographs of your injuries, the accident scene, and the cars involved in the accident.
Keep any items, such as pill bottles, receipts, glass removed from cuts, or physical aides you used during the recovery process.
Describe your accident.
Either draw a detailed diagram or write down exactly how your accident happened, including the lane you were traveling in and the path of the other vehicle(s) involved.
Get a copy of the police report.
Visit your local police station to file a report or obtain a copy of the report filed by officers at the scene of the accident.
Call your insurance company.
Call your insurance agent to notify him or her of your accident. Don’t share any details about your injuries.
