What Would You Do?
Knowing exactly what to do after an accident can save valuable time, which may mean the difference between life and death. At the very least, having a basic understanding of how to proceed in the moments after you’ve been involved in a car, motorcycle, bicycle, or truck accident may help you to avoid being held responsible for the negligence of another party. While law enforcement may take a considerable amount of time sorting through the details of accidents like those described above, the parties involved may have had mere seconds to make potentially life-altering decisions. It can be difficult to think quickly and clearly in the immediate aftermath of an accident, so it’s important for all drivers to memorize a plan of action that can be taken if an accident occurs. In this short video, I provide a basic framework for steps you should take if you’re involved in an accident.
