Knowing what to do after a car crash in Honolulu or anywhere on Oahu can be confusing. But it's important that you take certain steps right away to protect your health and your rights. First, call 911. This will let the police know you have been involved in a collision. The 911 dispatcher will then notify the Honolulu Police Department or the State of Hawaii Department of Public Safety, depending on the location of your crash. The dispatcher can also send an ambulance to take you or other injury victims to The Queen's Medical Center or another nearby hospital. Of course, your health should always come first. If you are healthy enough to do so, there are also certain things you can do to strengthen your car accident injury claim or lawsuit. Take pictures of your crash site. Talk to witnesses. Exchange information with the other driver. Then call a lawyer. An experienced Honolulu attorney can make sure your rights are respected.
