Car accidents can happen when you least expect it to. You could be on your way to work, and notice a speeding driver making his or her way down the street. The speeding driver goes over a red light and directly crashes into a vehicle that was given the right-of-way to drive. As a witness, you are given the opportunity to get out of your vehicle and assist the victim or drive away without providing any helpful information that could support the victim if they choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the speeding driver.
If you choose to assist the victim, you should have an idea of what to do in order to be of use in such a traumatic moment. In the section below, we have created a list of steps a witness should do to help a victim of a car accident.
