Every time you get behind the wheel of your car, you are at risk for injuries. Even if you are a safe driver who practices courtesy and observes all rules of the road, you still can be injured by the negligence of other drivers. Accidents can occur for a multitude of reasons such as:

What to Do If in An Auto Accident
The single most important thing to focus on after an accident is your health and the health of those around you. Make sure that you give your injuries the attention they deserve. If you can, do not move and wait for help and an ambulance to arrive.
If your health and injury status allows, you should call the police. It is a good idea to get an idea of what happened clear in your head and take photos of the scene and of the vehicles involved. Tell the police exactly how the accident occurred and make sure they have all the relevant facts. All of these things help us build a stronger case for you.
AFTER THE ACCIDENT
After an accident, an insurance company representative may contact you to discuss the case. Other than giving them basic information, such as where the accident occurred, your basic pedigree information, and describing the damage to your vehicle; you should not offer up any other information until you speak with an attorney. The insurance companies are not always looking out for your best interest and you need to remember this.
Following an accident, you should follow up with your doctor or health care specialist if warranted. There are a lot of important factors that must be addressed, such as filling out No-Fault forms, contacting your employer for lost wage benefits, and getting your life back on track.
