Checklist of what to do if you are in an accident

  • Call 911 and when police arrive, insist they file an accident report
  • Call your insurance company, report the accident, and file a claim
  • If the police ask if you want an ambulance, don't say no! When the ambulance arrives, let them examine you and, only then, decide if you want them to transport you to the hospital.
