If you are uninjured you may want to contact your own insurance company to report the accident and have them help you through the process.  If the accident was the fault of another, you should consider documenting the scene and the vehicles with your cell phone camera if you are able and taking names and telephone numbers of any witnesses to the crash.

 

If you are treated in the hospital it is a good idea to follow the instructions of your physicians and obtain follow-up care as directed.  Keep a copy of the bills and receipts and all business cards from doctors you see.  Part of the process of attempting to resolve a personal injury case is to document the medical treatment of the victim.  By obtaining cards from the doctors you see it will make the process much quicker and gathering the necessary medical records.
