One of the many risks of driving a vehicle is the risk of hitting another car. If you’ve ever been involved in an accident you know that it is not a fun experience. You know the stress that can be involved with the overall process. So let’s discuss what are some good practices after being involved in an auto accident.
One of the first things that you should do after an accident is to check yourself for injuries. Call 911 if necessary. If you are seriously injured you should not move and wait for emergency personnel to assist you.
Once you have checked if you are in good condition check on the well-being of your passengers if any.
Now that every member involved has been checked for injuries get to a safe place. If you need to call 911 to send an officer to make sure that the area is secure then do that.
Now you can exchange information with the involved party. These are the important pieces of information you should obtain:
Full name and contact information
Insurance company and policy number
Driver’s license and plate number
Location of accident
Make sure you document the accident well. Take pictures, speak with witnesses or a police officer, and get copies of all important information.
Once you have obtained all the information you can get now you can contact your insurance company (or the involved party’s insurance company depending on fault) and start the claims process. From this point on everything will be handled with the insurance company and they should keep you informed.
