However, keep in mind that your adrenaline is probably pumping and you could be in more pain than you know. It is always a good idea to see a doctor to make sure you are in good health.

Make a list of everything you can remember about the accident. This contains everyone involved’s name and contact information, as well as any witnesses who witnessed anything. Make a list of the license plate numbers. Make a list of everything you remember about the accident. Take pictures of the vehicle’s damage as well as any injuries you have incurred. All medical records should be copied. You will be in a better position if you have more evidence.
