What to do after a car accident
WalletHub: Jonathan Ernest, associate professor of economics at Weatherhead School of Management, said that among the most important things to do following a car accident are to stay calm, call 911 if anyone is injured and keep everyone away from oncoming traffic. Then, he said, drivers should always report an accident to their insurance company, regardless of the scale. “There are many reasons why you may consider reporting any vehicular accident to your auto insurance company,” he said. “Outside of any legal requirements to do so, you might want documentation of the accident to file a claim.”
