Accidents can range from little fender benders to more serious collisions, so knowing what to do if you have an accident can relieve some of the stress. Try to move the accident off the road, especially if you're in an area where there's a chance to cause other accidents. Make sure everyone is okay, and if someone is injured, aid them the best you can and call an ambulance.
If everyone is fine, you'll want to exchange information for your insurance companies: name, telephone number, driver's license and insurance policy number.
Filing an Accident Report
If someone is injured or the accident caused more than $1,000 of damage, a report must be made with the DMV within 21 days.
