The best thing to do is to contact a lawyer immediately to obtain information about what you should do. Time is of the essence. Do not delay!

If you can, take photos of the scene from different angles. include road conditions, the street, all vehicles and the overall scene. Take many photos of your vehicle. Retain as much evidence as possible.

- Do not discuss who is responsible for the accident. Speak with the police and allow them to fill out their reports without an admission of guilt from you.
