Your actions in the time following an accident can affect both your health and your ability to be financially compensated for your injuries, damaged property, pain and suffering, and more. Before you do anything else, make sure everyone inside your vehicle is safe, move your vehicle to the side of the road then exchange contact information with the other driver. Contact emergency responders so that police can make an official report of the incident and paramedics can assess any injuries suffered as a result.
