You’re heading down the road on your way to work just like every other weekday this year. The route is so ingrained in you that you expect every morning to be just as uneventful as the morning before. But on this particular day, everything becomes different in an instant. You cross an intersection and within seconds are forced off the road by a vehicle hitting you from the driver’s side. Your car ends up in the ditch. You are hurting but still conscious and able to walk.

It’s not atypical for panic to set in. Some people get emotional while others get downright angry. For most, there is some level of shock that sets in as well. While this can definitely be a stressful event, there are some key steps you should take to make the process easier and more manageable. These steps will, of course, vary, depending on the severity of the accident.

First, make sure that you stop your vehicle. Do not leave the scene of the accident, no matter how minor the accident may seem. The next step you take depends on the severity of the case. If you suspect someone is injured, the damages are more than $1,000 or you think someone may have done something illegal that led to the accident, call the police.

If it appears that no one is injured and that the damages for all vehicles involved is less than $1,000, call the police and they will instruct you further. They might decide to come out or they may tell you to call a Collision Reporting Centre within a day.

In our next post, we will continue our discussion on the steps to take if you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident.

If you, a friend or a family member are victims of someone's negligence and suffering from injuries and losses, contact us to speak to one of our lawyers to know your rights and what steps you should be taking in order to protect your rights for the future.
