What to do At the Scene of an Accident

When you have been in a car accident, there are a few things that you need to do at the scene.  Here are three main things will help you and the parties who were involved in the accident.

1. The first thing you should do is check to see if everyone is okay.  If you are experiencing trouble moving, you need to be as still as possible and try not to push yourself to move or do anything else until help arrives. Pushing yourself to move could cause extreme damage to your body.

2. You will need to set up cones around the accident site.  These cones will alert oncoming traffic and let them know that they need to be cautious.  These cones will also let emergency teams know where the accident is where they need to stop.

3. Make sure that you get each party that was involved in the wreck to provide you with their insurance information.  It is important that you do not discuss who was or was not at fault for the accident.  Gather as much information as you can about their auto insurance.
