fender-bender

Being in a car accident can be very stressful and scary. No one plans to be in a car accident, but having a plan for what to do when one happens will make it easier to get through it. The best way to deal with an accident is to be prepared for one. Keep these following tips in mind to help orchestrate a smooth and calm post-accident experience.

Check for injuries. First, take care of yourself and then check on others. Find out if anyone is hurt. If anyone involved requires emergency assistance, call 911.

Exchange info. Share insurance information with the others drivers. Also exchange names, addresses and phone numbers. Write down the vehicle’s make, model and license number of those involved.

File a report. Call your local law enforcement to the scene or go to the nearest station to complete a police report. Obtain a copy of the report or ask for the report number.

Take photos. If you have a camera or camera phone with you, use it to take pictures at the scene. Get shots of the vehicles involved, damage and license plates. This kind of documentations could help you later with your insurance claim.

Contact your insurer. Contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report your accident and any damages.
