Accident Dos and Don’ts

If you are in an accident, here are some dos and don’ts of steps you should immediately take.


  • collect all pertinent information from the other person(s) involved — name, address, telephone numbers, driver’s license numbers, insurance card information, etc.
  • take pictures of your automobile damage or physical injuries
  • get the names, addresses and phone numbers of witnesses
  • notify officers on the scene of all the details of the accident that you can recall, and let them know if you are experiencing pain
  • seek medical attention immediately if you are injured
  • keep a daily journal of any mental or physical pain you are experiencing
  • contact a reputable personal injury lawyer as soon as possible
  • direct all requests for information, statements and signed documents to your attorney
  • contact the State Bar of Nevada immediately at 702.382.2200 if you are contacted by phone from an attorney offering to represent you. Such contacts are unethical and inappropriate.


  • speak to an insurance adjuster or private investigator regarding any matter related to your claim
  • give written or recorded statements to anyone about your case
  • sign checks or any other documents without first checking with your attorney
  • fail to contact your attorney if you are approached by any person or organization in relation to your case
