Salazar Law Frequently Asked Questions:

If I have an auto accident, what should I do at the accident scene?

  1. Don't go anywhere. Stay Put.
  2. Call the police or send a witness to call.
  3. Render first aid to other victims if you are qualified to do so. Do not move any person unless not doing so directly endangers their life.
  4. Do not move vehicles unless they are obstructing further traffic. If you have to move them, move them as little as possible.
  5. Do not make statements to anybody at the accident scene, except for the police. Be very careful what you say. Do not falsely admit responsibility.
  6. If you are hurt in any way even if it seems insignificant seek medical treatment at the scene.
  7. Gather information. Get the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all passengers, witnesses, and the driver. Get the license number and insurance company name and policy number from the driver and owner.
  8. If your car must be towed, get the name and license number of the driver, and the name, address, phone number, and registration number of the towing company. Also, find out how much the towing will cost.
