Stay Safe After a Multi-Vehicle Crash
Aside from slowing down and avoiding distractions, your Brownsville car accident lawyer would like to advise you to yield to other drivers and be courteous on the road. Stop at red lights, follow the rules of the road, and don’t drink and drive.
However, if you’ve recently been involved in a multiple-vehicle accident, we recommend you do the following:
- Check yourself and your passengers for injuries, and if it is safe to do so, stay in your vehicle.
- Call 911 to report any injuries and the accident.
- Move your vehicle away from the flow of traffic if your vehicle is still able to and can do so safely.
- Don’t stand in the street or at the guardrail or shoulder.
- If the vehicle catches on fire, move at least 100 feet away from it.
Once your safety isn’t at risk and the authorities have arrived at the scene, you may begin collecting witness information from any witnesses, exchanging insurance information with the other driver, and taking pictures of the vehicles involved in the accident.
