With or without any sustained injuries, being in a car accident is a very scary experience. It can put not only your physical well-being in danger, but your emotional and mental state can be negatively impacted as well. If you've been injured in an accident, there are a few things you want to do:
- If you can do so safely, pull over. If not, stay put.
- Check yourself for external and internal injuries. Blood, scratches, and bruisings are obvious signs of injury, but it's important to also note any aches or pains that don't have physical signs of injury, too that may indicate internal damage.
- Take pictures of everything. The more evidence you have, the better.
- Gather the other driver's information. This includes name, contact information, insurance information, make and model of the vehicle, and the license plate number.
