If you are involved in an accident, you must stop or risk being charged with fleeing the scene of an accident. If no physical injuries are incurred, at a minimum you must exchange insurance and personal contact information with the other person.

If a possible injury has occurred, call for police and emergency assistance. Maintaining an accident kit in your vehicle with such items as flares, blankets, emergency medical kit, a pad of paper and pen for taking notes and witness’ names and numbers, and a disposable camera for taking photographs of the scene is also advisable. Cooperate with medical and police personnel, don’t admit liability, and contact your health and automobile insurer, as well as your attorney, as soon as possible.
