What To Do After An Accident
Following an accident it is important to make sure everyone involved is as safe as possible. We recommend turning on your hazard lights and pulling your car over if possible. Next, check to make sure you have no injuries along with the rest of your passengers. If someone has been injured, don’t move them, additional damage can be caused.
Next, we recommend calling 911 to report the accident. If someone is injured, make sure to ask for medical assistance as well. We recommend going to the hospital or visiting your doctor following an accident just to be safe. Sometimes injuries can take a few days to be noticed. Once the police arrive, be sure to document their names. If any witnesses are present, also get their name.
We also recommend taking pictures of your car along with any cars involved in the accident. Make sure to also take notes of what happened before, during and after your accident (including wear, traffic and road conditions along with location).
You should also exchange information with anyone else involved in the accident. This information should include names, addresses, contact information, license plate numbers, driver’s license numbers, insurance providers along with their policy numbers. This will make it easier to file claims with insurance when you need to.
