Most people tend to panic after an accident due to adrenaline and although it may be hard to keep a clear mind after an accident, one must remember to stay calm and do the following:

1. Check if you or anyone riding the vehicle with you has suffered any injury. Call emergency response if anyone is injured.

2. Once you’ve made sure that no one is in immediate threat, alight from your vehicle and take pictures of the accident. Take pictures of both vehicles involved, including license plates, the damages to the vehicles, and the surrounding area. These pictures will be useful for insurance claims or if there will be a dispute about who has caused the accident.

3. If possible, move your vehicle to the side of the road to avoid more accidents from oncoming vehicles. A two-car fender bender can turn into a multiple-car pile-up if one is not careful.

4. Talk to the other driver. Get the other driver’s name, address, contact information and insurance details, and provide the same for him.
