So you’ve just had the misfortune to be involved in an accident. What should you do next?

Being invloved in even the lightest shunt can be quite a traumatic and lengthy process. After an accident (regardless of fault) those involved are often well shaken up, if not injured more – it can be hard to keep a clear head and think what to do next. From a legal perspective there’s also a number of requirements to ensure you do not break the law. In addition, to assist in completing a smooth and trouble free insurance claim, your insurance company will want to know as much as possible too!

That’s a lot to remember right after an accident and that’s assuming you’re ok!

The AA provides these great pointers from a legal perspective.
The RAC have handy tips about the type of information you should make a note of.
