Your Car Accident Checklist
What should you do if you have been in a car accident in L.A.?
- Call 9-1-1 and request law enforcement to come to the scene of the accident and file a report.
- Assess your passenger(s) for injuries and request an ambulance if necessary.
- Ask politely for witnesses to stay until the police arrive so they can provide their version of events.
- Ask any witnesses for their names and phone numbers if they have to leave and cannot wait for the police to arrive; be sure to provide this information to the officers.
- Inform law enforcement of any injuries, pain, or discomfort as soon as they arrive; even if they do not ask.
- Get the license plate, make, and model vehicle that hit you; if you were a passenger, get this information for the vehicle in which you were riding as well.
- Request immediate medical attention and an ambulance if you are dizzy, have double vision, have headaches, or are nauseous.
- Blindly believe in the apologies of the person that hit you and their requests to not get the police involved.
- Agree to the other driver’s request to keep this “between us” or trust an arrangement for them to pay for damages out-of-pocket to avoid an increased insurance premium.
- Assume law enforcement will obtain the names, phone numbers, or addresses of witnesses to the accident.
- Assume that if law enforcement spoke to a witness, their information and statements will appear on the collision report.
- Assume you are not injured because there is no blood.
- Report the accident to your own insurance company or the driver’s insurance company without a lawyer’s assistance.
- Wait several days or weeks to contact a knowledgeable car accident attorney.
