Car accidents

Immediately after a car accident

It is not something we want to think about but car accidents do happen and it is important that you know what to do if you are involved.

1. Stop

However minor you think a car accident is, you must stop. In fact, failing to do so is an offence in law.

Call the police if someone was hurt in the car accident

You should make sure your car’s engine is switched off and then turn your warning lights on to alert other road users to your presence.

2. Call 999 or 101

Take a look around and if anyone has been injured in the car accident you should call the police (and an ambulance, if necessary) as soon as possible.

The police should also be called if the car accident is blocking the road.
