What would you do if you had a car accident?

After a car accident in New South Wales (NSW), it is crucial to follow certain steps to ensure your safety, gather necessary information, and fulfill legal obligations:

  1. Safety first: Assess the situation and ensure your safety and the safety of others involved. Move your vehicle to a safe location if possible and turn on hazard lights to alert other drivers.
  2. Check for injuries: Determine if anyone is injured and immediately call emergency services if required. Provide necessary assistance but avoid moving injured individuals unless they are in immediate danger.
  3. Exchange information: Exchange important details with the other party involved, including names, addresses, phone numbers, vehicle registration numbers, and insurance details. Also, note down the names and contact information of any witnesses present.
  4. Notify the police: Contact the police if the accident involves injury, significant damage to property, a hit-and-run, or if the other party fails to stop and exchange information. Obtain a copy of the police report or the event number.
  5. Document the accident: Take photos or videos of the accident scene, including the damage to vehicles and any relevant road conditions. This evidence may be useful during insurance claims or legal proceedings.
  6. Inform your insurer: Report the accident to your insurance company as soon as possible, providing accurate details and supporting documentation. They will guide you through the claims process and provide necessary assistance.
  7. Seek medical attention: Even if you do not have visible injuries, it is advisable to seek medical evaluation after an accident. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent, and documentation of injuries is essential for insurance purposes. Ask your GP to refer you to a Physiotherapist to assist you after your motor vehicle accident.
  8. Report to authorities: Within 24 hours of the accident, complete an online accident notification form through the Service NSW website or visit a Service NSW Centre to report the incident.
  9. Consult with legal advice: If you have sustained significant injuries, property damage, or encounter challenges during the claims process, consider consulting with a lawyer specializing in motor vehicle accidents for guidance and representation.

Remember, it is crucial to comply with NSW laws and regulations regarding car accidents, ensuring the safety of everyone involved and fulfilling your responsibilities as a driver.
