- Call the police – Having a legal accident report can help support your claim and show the details of what caused the accident.
- Don’t talk to anyone besides the police and your attorney – Limit your conversation with people at the accident scene and don’t say things like “I’m sorry” or “My boss is going to kill me.” These statements can imply fault.
- Collect information – Get the names and contact information of any witnesses, take pictures and/or recordings of the scene, obtain copies of the police report and any medical records.
- Seek medical attention – Even if you feel uninjured you should be checked out by a healthcare professional and obtain a copy of their notes and records to support your injury claim.
If you follow these guidelines on the scene of a car accident that occurred while you were driving a company vehicle, you will be able to support your injury claim and increase your odds of a favorable outcome.
