This is why our South Jersey car accident lawyers generated a quick guide on how to R.E.A.C.T. if you are in a car accident.  

Report. Contact the police to report the accident. Let them know if anyone is injured or if there is immediate danger, such as the accident occurred in a major intersection. 

Explain. Give the facts of the accident only to the police and your attorney.  

Acquire. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver. Use your smartphone camera to take photos and videos of the accident scene, your vehicle and the other driver’s vehicle, as well as record witness statements.  

Careful. Do not post any information about the accident or your injuries on social media. This could be used against you if you decide to start a case.  

Telephone. Call Grungo Law immediately, 24/7, to protect your rights.
