The following advice is crucial when in a motor vehicle accident. Often times after an accident has occurred, the police do not ask enough questions and accident victims are overwhelmed and in a state of panic. In these times, we must be our own advocates and remember to advise the 911 operator and the Philadelphia Police of any injury at the scene of an accident. Otherwise, the police will not make an accident report at the scene. Remember to tell the police if you have suffered any injuries!
