What Should You Do After An Accident?
If you are involved in an automobile accident in West Virginia, you are required to stop at the scene and provide assistance if possible. Stop your car as close to the scene as you can, but do not risk causing another accident. Put your emergency lights on before getting out of the car.
Emotions run high after an accident. If possible, take a moment to collect your thoughts and “get yourself together.” Check for injuries. People’s lives and health are far more important than car damage. When in doubt, call an ambulance to ensure that medical personnel are on their way. Call the police, even if the accident is minor.
What Information Should You Collect?
If possible, you should gather certain types of information immediately after the accident. To assist you in gathering this important information, Romano & Associates, PLLC, will send you, free of charge, our Accident Information Form and Insurance Information Envelope packet for your glove box.
