Auto Accident Checklist – English

Helpful Tips for Car Accidents

Before you are in a car accident, be prepared and have with you:

  1. Your auto insurance card.
  2. Proof of vehicle registration.
  3. Murray Guari Helpful Tips for Car Accidents.
  4. Murray Guari Emergency Auto Tool (If you don’t have one, ask us for one).
  5. First aid kit.
  6. Orange triangles for emergency use.
  7. Call your insurance company and make sure you have Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage. This coverage can only protect you if you have it before being in an accident.

If you are in a car accident, follow these steps:

  1. Stay calm and check for injuries.
  2. Always call 911 to report the accident, even if the other driver asks you not to.
  3. Put on your emergency hazard lights and only move your vehicle if you feel unsafe or if the investigating police officer asks you to move it.
  4. Do not discuss the accident details until the police arrive.
  5. If you are able, and it’s safe to do so, take photographs and video of the property damage to all vehicles involved in the accident, the position of the vehicles on the roadway, and any physical evidence on the roadway, like skid marks.
  6. Record the names, telephone numbers, and addresses of any witnesses on the reverse side of this card.
  7. Write down the accident details, including what you observe and anything the other driver and witness(es) say, on the reverse side of this card.

After the car accident, make sure to:

  1. Seek medical attention right away, if you think you may be injured.
  2. Report the accident to your insurance company. Keep it simple, honest, and accurate.
  3. DO NOT agree to a recorded statement until after you speak to us.
  4. Call Murray Guari Trial Attorneys to seek legal advice and to protect your rights.
