No one anticipates getting involved in an accident when they leave the driveway in the morning. However, the streets and roadways are unpredictable, and a Virginia Beach car accident can happen without warning, leaving you or a loved one seriously injured.
Immediately Following an Accident
A collision can leave you confused about what to do immediately after it occurs. Here are the first three things you should do if you are involved in a collision:
- Stop. Do not drive away from an accident scene, no matter how minor it appears. Someone could be injured and need your help.
- Call 9-1-1. Dial 9-1-1 immediately if someone appears injured.
- Move your vehicle. If no one appears to be injured or killed as a result of the collision, you should move your vehicle out of the traffic lane. This could help minimize the chances of another accident occurring.
