- Document the scene of the accident by taking pictures, talking to witnesses, etc.
- Get the name, insurance information, and contact information of the other involved person/party.
- Refrain from speaking to insurance adjusters or anyone from the other party’s insurance company.
- Notify your own insurance company (if applicable) of the accident.
