“Auto accidents are always unexpected. It’s not as if you leave your home planning to collide with another car that day,” says Dax Jones, lead attorney at The Jones Firm, in a recent article explaining the need for drivers to assemble a roadside emergency kit.
“Therefore,” he continues, “It’s important to plan for the best but prepare for the worst. Keeping a simple emergency kit in your car’s trunk can make a huge difference at the scene of the collision.”

Recommended items include a first aid kit, paper and pens, emergency contact information, and a cell phone with a relatively good camera.
Equipment such as traffic cones, warning triangles, and road flares are also suggested as ways to notify oncoming drivers of the incident and to keep other cars clear of the accident area. Ensuring that everyone involved in the accident is safe afterwards is vital. It’s important to make yourself visible to other cars on the road, especially at night.
“You can save yourself and others a lot of time, hassle, and stress by being prepared for the event of an auto accident,” Dax advises.
The Jones Firm has also recently released an eBook explaining the steps that drivers should take immediately following an auto accident. Drivers should make themselves aware of the proper and recommended procedures for filing a claim, selecting an attorney, and appearing at court.
