Contacting your insurer
The first thing you need to do after getting involved in an auto accident is to contact your insurance company. Your insurer will generally need to know when and where the accident took place and also the parties involved. The insurance company might also need to know what caused the accident and this can prove quite tricky – admitting liability could put you in trouble. Determining who the guilty party is not always easy and the best you should do is to seek the advice of a lawyer before giving any written statements to the insurance company.
