WHAT DO I DO IF I AM IN AN ACCIDENT?

by William Mattar | January 9th, 2014

Do not leave the scene of the accident. If an accident causes property damage, then all persons involved must stay at the scene until either the accident is reported to the police or all persons involved show each other their license and insurance identification card, give their name, residence, insurance carrier, and show their insurance identification information.

If the accident causes personal injury, New York State Law requires the above information exchange and notification to police. You should also take pictures of the area, the vehicles, and any injuries, as long as it does not put you or others in danger.

If you are hurt, go to the emergency room or to your doctor as soon as you can. Report all of your injuries and tell your doctor you were in a motor vehicle accident.
