Actions to Take Following a Motor Vehicle Accident

It is critical that you know what to do in the event of an accident. The folks at Wyoming Valley Kia have a few tips to help you in the aftermath of a collision with another vehicle, pedestrian or animal. You should never leave the scene of an accident, even if yours is the only car involved.

Assuming that you are not injured, get out of the car and start gathering as much evidence as possible. This can be used by your insurance company to build a case that you weren't responsible for the accident. An attorney may also use pictures or witness statements in a civil case.

Do not move your vehicle unless instructed to do so by a police officer. If you are in pain, an ambulance can take you to the hospital, and it is always a good idea to seek medical treatment after a crash.
