What You Should Do If You Are a Victim

If you are injured, seek medical attention. A family member, co-worker, friend or bystander can help complete the following tasks.

Make notes of as many details as you can about the responsible party, whether it is another driver or a supervisor at a workplace. If you were in a traffic accident, pay especially close attention to the vehicle’s license plate number.

  1. Immediately call the police to the scene of the accident. Get a copy of the police report.
  2. Get contact information from witnesses, and find out the details of what they witnessed.
  3. Photograph the scene (or have a witness or bystander do so).
  4. Report the incident to your insurance company immediately.
  5. Do not attempt to negotiate your case with the responsible insurance company yourself.
