What other things should I do after a car accident?
First and foremost try to remain calm so that you can make clear decisions about what your next steps should be. Typically, the first priority is to move yourself to the safest place possible so you are not hit again. Next, you should make sure that you and your passengers receive medical attention if you have been injured. The next step should be to call the police and your lawyer immediately for assistance. Finally, get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses and take photographs if possible.
