Michigan Car Accident To Do List

Every day someone is involved or injured in a Michigan automobile accident. If you ever happen to be one of those unfortunate people you,  should know there are certain things that you should do to protect yourself. These steps include:

  1. Immediately call for medical help if injuries are involved.
  2. Keep an emergency kit in your glove compartment (i.e. cell phone, card with your information about your health or medical conditions that may require specific attention, seat belt cutter, flashlight, pen, paper, etc...).
  3. Exchange information - name, address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver license number and plate number for the driver and owner of each vehicle involved.
  4. Document and take pictures of the accident - If you have a smart phone with a camera, take pictures of everything. Also draw out a diagram of the accident and write down as much detail about the accident that you possibly can (date, weather, location). The more details the more it can help! 
  5. Report the accident to your insurance company and know what your insurance covers.
  6. Call the police and file an accident report - Law enforcement officials may not respond to the accident if there were no injuries, however, file a state vehicle accident report which can be found at police stations so that the claims process will go quicker.
  7. Move cars to side of the road - If there are NO injuries involved, moving cars to the side of the road is safer for you and the other drivers on the road as well to avoid further possible accidents.
  8. Contact a Michigan car accident lawyer - If you suffer severe injuries due to the fact that the other driver was negligent you have means for a car accident lawsuit.
