If you're involved in a car accident, it's important to stay calm and take the following steps:
- If Injured, Seek Medical Treatment. Find a local hosipital or urgent care, like the Monmouth Medical Center.
- Call the Lakewood Police Department: The Lakewood Police Department will respond to the scene of the accident and take a report. They will also interview any witnesses and take statements from the parties involved.
- Your Insurance Company: You will need to notify your insurance company about the accident as soon as possible. They will likely want to send an adjuster to inspect the damage to your vehicle.
- The Other Driver's Insurance Company: If the other driver was at fault, their insurance company will be responsible for repairing your vehicle. They may also be responsible for any medical bills you incur as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.
