What to do After a Traffic Accident in Maine
If someone runs a red light, makes a turn without checking if the lane is clear, or is weaving in and out of traffic, the likelihood of an accident increases greatly. Traffic laws exist to keep drivers and passengers safe, but when an accident occurs, there are important steps to follow.
If there are any injuries sustained by anyone involved, or an imminent threat from a vehicle fire or spillage, call 911 immediately.
If there is no immediate emergency, call the nonemergency number for local or state police.
2.) Exchange Information & Gather Evidence
Share names, license numbers, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information with anyone involved in the accident.
Take photos of the damage if you can
