What Do I Do Immediately After a Car Accident?
Address Medical Concerns First. Call 911. If you are in a condition to move your vehicle and it will move, get it out of the way of any incoming traffic. Assess the situation by evaluating your own wellbeing and wellbeing of other motorists, passengers, or pedestrians. Make sure the police are notified as well so an accident report can be started.
Exchange Information. In Kentucky, you are required to provide and receive the following information to and from any other parties involved in the accident:
- Name, address, and contact information
- Driver license number
- License plate number of the vehicles involved
- Auto insurance information for the motorists involved
