You will likely be in some amount of distress when you're involved in a car accident, but it's still important to know what to do to ensure you protect others and handle the situation correctly. Start by asking other people involved if they're injured or need medical attention. You may need to call 911.

It's also important to exchange some of your information with the other drivers involved, which includes your driver's license and insurance card. Write all of their information down to give to your insurance company.

Use your smartphone to take photos of the damage, which will make it easier for your insurance company to conduct an investigation to determine who is at fault for the accident. Avoid apologizing to the other drivers for the accident or taking responsibility. This will immediately cause you to be responsible for the damages. Instead, allow the insurance companies to determine who is responsible.
