There are actually several dos and don’ts following a car accident. You should never admit fault to anyone either at the scene of the accident or after you leave the scene. You should never accept payment from an insurance company. You should call for medical help and file a police report. You should get the names (and other information) of any witnesses to your auto accident. You should then call a skilled auto accident attorney to find out what to do next.
