Never leave the accident scene until it is all over. If you leave the scene where people got injured you can face serious criminal penalties for a hit and run.
When you are in an accident it is a good idea to call the police. The reason being is they try to collect as much information as they can. At times when someone is very injured they do not able to stay and wait to collect the incident report number because they are being rushed to the hospital if that happens you will be able to give them you name, date, and location of the accident so they may be able to find it in that manner. If one is not at seriously injured at the time they may stay and wait for the police to finish his/her report. In the report they collects names, insurance police, do a sketch of the seen, collect witnesses statements ect... Police reports consist of facts and opinions.
In the roads of California, carelessness or reckless driving can cause severe accidents, however those are not the only reasons accidents happen, drunk driving, distracted driving, or cell phone usage while driving can also be general causes of damages and sometimes injuries.
We invite you to be careful while driving, always keeping a safe distance, and avoid using your cellphone while on the road.
