How to Handle a Car Accident

Living in a city like Los Angeles where nearly all residents drive, there is a chance that you might be involved in a car accident. There is no need to panic, just follow these following steps.
First you will want to pull over to the side of the road but only if you can safely do so. From there you will proceed with assessing the damage to the vehicles and persons involved.
If you are asked if you are injured, do not say no even if you feel fine. Car accident injuries sometimes take the time to manifest themselves. Simply state you are unsure.
Then assess damage to the vehicles, take photos of both your car and the other vehicle as well. Exchange license and insurance information with the other driver. Make a call to the police so they can file a report for insurance purposes.
