We can’t be there the first few moments after you find yourself in an accident…but we still want to do everything we can to help you out. So what do you do?
The first thing to remember is that with some initial preparation, you can always be ready. Always carry a vehicle safety kit, because you never know when you’re going to need it. Store all your important information in the glovebox, where you can easily access it. Finally, make sure you have all your important phone numbers in your cellphone.
Okay, now down to springing into an action. The accident occurs and you need to figure out what to do next. Well first, move the car into a safe location. This way you don’t put other motorist in harm’s way. But never ever leave the scene!
After checking if anyone is hurt or if you need to contact emergency services for medical attention, you can contact the police.
Next, you’re going to exchange information with other driver(s) involved in the accident. You’re going to want to receive their names, phone numbers, addresses, and email addresses. If there’s any witnesses, it would also be beneficial to grab their info as well.
You’ll want to take photos of the accident scene and all of the vehicles that are involved. If the police do respond to the accident, you’re going to need the police report number, the precinct’s phone number, officer name and badge number.
