1. Stop Immediately, and do not move your vehicle unless it is necessary to do so;
2. Call the Police and get an office to the accident scene;
3. Exchange license numbers and addresses;
5. If there are witnesses, try to get their names, addresses and telephone numbers;
6. Get pictures of both cars -- all sides of both cars;
7. Accept medical assistance if you need it;
8. Notify your insurance agent or company as soon as possible;.
9. Obtain a copy of the Police Report as soon as it is ready;
10. Contact The Law Office of Matthew J. Broder and make an appointment for a consulation;
11. DO NOT allow any insurance company to take a recorded statement.
12. DO NOT discuss your injuries with any insurance company representative.
Why 11 and 12? Because insurance adjusters LOVE to get you to say things like "I'm O.K." prior to your experiencing the real effects of being hit, which often take several days to materialize. They record your statement, and then use it against you to deny you compensation.
