Collect as much information as possible about your accident

Car accidents happen all the time in Kentucky, as is the case throughout the United States. If you are a driver, there is a good chance that you have at least witnessed an accident even if you have not been involved in one yourself. When this happens, emotions run high and it can be difficult to think clearly. However, there are certain steps you should try to run through if ever you are in an accident.

First, of course, you should call for medical attention. This is important even if everyone appears to be well. It can be difficult to tell if someone has suffered a blow to the head or another injury that may not manifest immediately. You may also need to call the police, particularly if anyone has been injured or killed.

Once this is done, it can be very helpful to exchange details with the other drivers and collect contact information from any witnesses. You should also take photographs of the scene if you can and make a note of the time, date and weather conditions.

The more information you can gather, the clearer the picture you can paint for your insurance provider or if you choose to take the matter to court. An attorney may be able to advise you on the options available to you. Furthermore, as is suggested in this article about the dos and don'ts of car accidents, it is safer not to speak to your insurance provider until you have consulted with your attorney.
