If you've just been involved in an accident while driving in your automobile, make sure that you take a deep breath and don't panic. There are some simple things that AutoWorld of Marble Falls recommends you should do before you go back home to calm down.

Calling 911 will bring a police officer to the scene of the accident, but you'll also be able to ask for medical help if someone has been injured during the process. A report will be written by law enforcement. You can submit this to your insurance provider or use it if there is a lawsuit filed.

You may not want to talk to the other people involved, but you need to obtain their contact information. This includes their name, address, phone number, license plate number, and vehicle insurance provider. You will need to share this information with your insurance provider as well.
