What Should I Do If I Have Been Involved In A Car Accident?
Being in a car crash is a very stressful situation. People usually are surprised at how stressed they can be even following a relatively minor accident. If you are injured or worried about your health following an accident, you should go to your doctor. If you have been seriously injured you will probably be taken to hospital by ambulance.
If you have been injured or if your car or other property has been damaged due to the negligence of another driver, you may have a claim against them for personal injuries and damage to your car and other property.
Things You Should Do Immediately
If you were driving you should notify your own insurance company immediately even if you do not believe you are at fault. Failure to notify them could result in a problem with insurance cover if the other driver takes a claim.
If the Gardaí were not called to the scene of the crash you should notify them without delay.
At the scene it is best to exchange names, addresses, registration details and insurance details with the other driver and to take the names and addresses of any witnesses. This is particularly important if the Gardaí are not at the scene.
If you have a mobile phone with a camera, use it to take pictures of the cars and the scene.
Do not admit liability.
