The things you do in the time following a collision are essential when it comes to your ability to secure compensation in the weeks, months, and even years afterward. First, you should pull over to a safe part of the roadway, which will protect you and your vehicle from being involved in a second crash. Next, check on every occupant of your vehicle. If someone is hurt, contact first responders right away. After that, begin gathering evidence at the scene, such as photos and videos.
