While no two car accidents are exactly the same, there are many steps that you can take that apply in a variety of situations.

If you have any questions about what actions to take or when you should act, the attorneys at Wocl Leydon offer free consultations and can provide you with the guidance you require.

  • Call for medical help and contact the police.
  • If possible, take as many pictures of the scene as you can.
  • Contact an attorney who can provide protect your interests.
  • Write down the license plate number, insurance information, and driver's license information of any other drivers involved in the crash.
