What to do after an Auto Accident
Nobody expects to be in an auto accident, but they do happen and it is a good idea to be prepared in the case that you are involved
in one. It is good to keep a flashlight, set of cones, warning triangles or emergency flares in your trunk in case of an
accident. Drivers should also keep these items in the glove box of your car.
1. A pen and paper for notes.
( Also two Auto Accident Information Forms that you will be able to printout
2. A disposable camera for taking pictures of the vehicles at the scene of the accident.
3. A card with relevant medical information for you and your family.
1. Check for injuries. When in doubt, call an ambulance.
2. If you are involved in a minor accident with no serious
injuries, you should move the cars to a safe place out of the way of oncoming traffic. Turn on hazard lights and set out cones,
flares or warning triangles if possible.
3. Call the police, even if the accident is minor.
4. Notify your insurance agent
about the accident immediately.
5. Exchange the following information for the driver and owner of each vehicle: Name,
address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver license number and license plate number. If the name on the auto registration
and/or insurance policy is different from the name of the driver, establish what the relationship and is and write down the name
and address for each individual.
6. If you do have a camera with you, take pictures and document the accident. If there were
witnesses, try to get their contact information incase the other drivers dispute your version of the accident.
7. Do not tell
the other drivers or the police that the accident was your fault, even if you think it is. Likewise, do not accuse the other drivers
of being at fault at this time either. When talking to the police and your insurance agent, be truthful about the facts, even if they
are detrimental to you.
