What should you do after a crash?

According to the AA immediately after the incident you should:

  • Stop the car as soon as possible – it's an offence not to do so.
  • Turn off the engine.
  • Switch the hazard lights on.
  • Check for any injuries to yourself or your passengers.
  • If it's a minor collision and there are no injuries, make a note of it just in case the other people later try to claim for an injury.
  • Call the police and an ambulance immediately if anyone is hurt or if the road is blocked.
  • Try to remain as calm as possible – its normal to be shaken after an accident, take a few deep breaths and try to take stock of the situation the best you can. And don't lose your temper.
  • Don't apologise or admit responsibility for the accident until you're completely aware of what happened – this can protect you from liability if it wasn't your fault.
