The actions you take after your Vermont car crash can make a big difference in the outcome of your accident claim. That’s why it’s important to know what to do and to act fast after your collision. First, call 911. The police will start investigating your accident. (Either a local police officer or state trooper from the Vermont State Police will likely respond to your collision.) They’ll prepare an official accident report. And you will get the medical care you need as well. Just ask the 911 dispatcher to send an ambulance if you or anyone else appears injured. Next, if you’re still at the scene of your crash and you’re healthy enough to do, start gathering evidence. Take photos of your crash. Get the names and phone numbers of witnesses. Exchange information with the other driver. Then call a lawyer right away. The sooner you have an attorney handling your Vermont car accident, the better.
