Car Accident Checklist – Download, Print, Put in Your Vehicle

Car crashes are violent and scary. Typically with no time to think or process the accident, you may be in shock, may not realize the extent of your injuries and most likely will not be in a frame of mind to make solid judgments and important decisions.

This car accident checklist, which you can download and print at the top of this page, includes actions to take immediately after a car accident to:

  • Stay as safe as possible
  • Get emergency help for yourself and others at the scene of the crash
  • Protect your car accident insurance claim

Compiled by a team of attorneys with 275 combined years of legal experience, Isaacs & Isaacs highly recommends eliminating the guesswork involved in these stressful events. Download and print this car accident checklist and keep it with your vehicle registration in your glove box. Preparing for the unexpected and giving you and your loved ones a plan can help reduce worry and confusion about what to do immediately after a car crash.

  1. Stay at the scene. 
  2. Call 911 for help if you/somebody else is injured.
  3. Check others for injury if you are able.
  4. Call the police if there’s property damage but nobody is injured.
  5. Get information from the other driver(s)
