Following a car accident, you may be confused about what your next move is. You may have suffered significant injuries or possibly only minor injuries. Either way, there are certain steps you will want to take to protect yourself when dealing with insurance companies.

Below are some guidelines on what to do following a crash:
What NOT to do following a crash:
Do NOT give a recorded statement to ANY insurance companies.
