There will be more than 6 million car accidents in the United States in 2020. Unfortunately, some of them will occur in the Wilmington, NC area. The good news (if there is any) is that most of them involve only property damage which is naturally damage to the vehicle as opposed to the occupants therein.
Here are some tips on what to do in the immediate aftermath of an accident –
1. Stay on the scene.
2. Set up flares and/or keep your flashers on.
3. Call the police as quickly as possible.
4. Make an accurate record and take pictures with your cell phone.
5. Always exchange information.
6. Protect your rights.
