The most important thing to do is to never leave the scene of an accident. Leaving the scene will automatically result in penalties including points against one’s driving record. People may also have their driving privileges revoked.
The next important step is to get to safety and call an ambulance. One should always be aware of any dangers such as fires. It is important to call 911 and notify authorities of all serious injuries, deaths, and property damage.
The final important step is to exchange insurance information with the other driver and get the information of those who witnessed the crash. Taking pictures of the scene of the accident is a good idea.
If a police report was not filed, and there was property damage, one must report the accident to the New Jersey Motor Vehicles Commission.
After this, it is a good idea to get a lawyer. They can help people navigate the law. Many people have a hard time dealing with the insurance companies, the other driver, and all of the other difficulties that come with a car crash.

We will meet with you to discuss and explain all aspects of your case so that you know what we will do and what to expect,” he stated.
Retaining the services of a good lawyer has proven to be vital in personal injury cases.
