First and foremost, after a car accident, it’s important to get the medical attention you need for your injuries. Once you’ve taken care of yourself and your loved ones, here’s a list of critical things to do after a car accident:

  • Save any evidence you have from the crash scene, such as photos, cellphone video, and contact information from witnesses.
  • Obtain a copy of the police report.
  • Get copies of your medical records, and save all bills, invoices, and receipts.
  • Gather proof of income documents, such as paystubs or W-2s.
