In our state alone, a traffic accident occurs every 4 minutes. A person dies every 20 hours in a car accident. In 2017, 525 people died in our state due to a traffic accident. There nearly 36,000 people injured in collisions. In total, there almost 120,000 traffic accidents in our state alone.

It is possible someone could suffer serious injury if they are not seen by a medical professional.
Get the other driver’s contact information. If law enforcement responds, get the case number.
It is so important to take photos of the vehicles involved in the accident. Even if the vehicles had to be moved to keep people safe, still take pictures of all vehicles involved. Make sure you include the license plates of every vehicle. Take photos of the surrounding area. For example, if there was a tree that was blocking your view or lights that did not work. Take pictures, and even video.
