Although you do your best to drive responsibly and defensively, be prepared just in case you do end up in a collision. Crashes can be scary but try to stay calm and remember what to do first should one happen to you.
We have an easy three-step process to help you get through this situation. We won’t just leave you with that. We’ve also got some extra tips that will help you get through this stressful time.
Take Down Driver Information
Ask to see the license of the driver involved in the crash so that you can take down their license numbers. Also get their name, address, phone number, insurance company, insurance policy number, and license plate number. If the driver doesn’t own the car involved, be sure to get owner’s info as well.
Report the Incident
The police must be called if there is any serious damage or injuries. After the police have been notified, contact us.
Take notes on the crash to stay organized. If the crash is minor and you feel that you can describe it, try to do so. Detailed notes and photos of the scene may help the insurance agencies decide who is responsible. Get a good description of the cars involved – year, make, model, and color. If your phone has a camera, take a photo of the scene, because sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words. Record the name and contact information of any witnesses to the accident.
