The first three things to do when you’re involved in an accident

For anyone who gets a driver's license and that's why I wrote the book is to get this information out there for those of us that don't get a chance to remember to pick up your flyer what are three of the first immediate things that we should do if we're involved in an accident the first three things that we should do okay first three things to do when you're in an accident number one be safe you leave your car where it is if you can but if it's not safe there you move it that's absolutely the number one thing number two call the police call the police every single time if they won't come then you exchange information with the other driver you take pictures you get documentation of the witnesses but you always call the police and make sure they come and the third thing is make sure you get checked out by a doctor I recommend going to the ER even if you don't think you're that badly hurt but if you choose not to go to the ER make sure you get checked out by a doctor right away because even if you don't think you're heard you might be and if for no other reason in the peace of mind you want to get checked out.
