Things to do (and what not to do) after a car accident

No one wants to ever get into a traffic accident. But things happen. Some accidents are just unavoidable. It is important that drivers and passengers know what to do, and what not do when they get involved in an accident, either within the city or on high way in any part of the world.
Here are quick things to do if you get involved in an accident.
First, Get our of danger. If you ever get involved in an accident, the first thing to do is to get out of the car. Try to help other passengers with you in the car. Call for help if you or anyone in seriously injured.
Secondly, the most important thing not to do in an accident is to admit liability even it was obvious that you are in the wrong. As the song goes ” Sorry is the hardest word”, it may not be true in life but it is a golden rule in a car accident.
Thirdly, do not panic if the other party refuses to exchange particulars. Just call 999 and let Traffic Police handle the case.
Fourth, regardless of whether it is your fault or not, take adequate pictures of both of the vehicles, vehicles’ number plate, damage, surroundings, road name, as well as the driver’s particulars. All will be helpful when you lodge a report with your insurer.
Fifth, remember to save your in-car footage immediately lest it gets overwritten later
