Many people are involved in accidents each year, and there are some basic things to do in the event that you’re involved in a collision.
What to Do if You Are Involved in an Accident
Keep an emergency kit in your car. It’s always good to have a few things in your glove compartment in case you’re in an accident. These include a pen, paper for notes, a disposable camera so you can take photos at the scene, and first-aid materials like bandages, gauze, burn cream, and disinfectant. If you have any medical conditions, make sure you have a card with all the pertinent information regarding medical allergies and treatment requirements.
Exchange information. After the accident occurs, it’s important to exchange information with anyone else involved. This includes your name, address, phone number, insurance company, your policy number, driver’s license number, and license plate number. If the person’s name doesn’t match the registered owner of the vehicle, get information on that person’s relationship to the vehicle owner. Get a good description of the other car involved in the accident, including year, make, model, and color, and make note of exactly where the accident happened and how it happened.
Take photos. Use your camera to take photographs of the damage to each vehicle involved in the accident. The photos need to show the context of the accident so you can use it when you file your claim.
Know your insurance policy. The filing process and dealing with your insurance company will be easier if you know what your coverage states in terms of accidents. Know beforehand if your insurance covers towing and a rental car, because in most cases you will need both. Your extensive notes, photos, and the police report will also help make the process to determine who is at fault much quicker.
