Get help for anybody that may be injured. Do not move anybody unless his or her life depends on it. Keep the injured warm.

Call emergency services if someone is injured or there if there is damage to any vehicle (over $1,000)

Turn on your hazard lights and warn oncoming traffic of the accident.

Stay at the scene until emergency services arrive (ambulance, police, fire) and cooperate with them after their arrival.

Gather as much information about the other driver as you can. Obtain the driver’s name, address, telephone number, driver’s license number, insurance company name, and insurance policy expiration date. It is also important to obtain information about the vehicles involved (make, model, and licence plate numbers).

Gather as much information about the passengers involved in the accident and witnesses to the accident. Obtain their names, addresses, and telephone numbers. Ask them to talk to the police about what they saw of the accident.

Do not give your opinion on how you think the accident happened. Stick to the facts that you are personally aware of.

If you are injured, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
