Being involved in a car accident can be a shocking experience. After an accident, even the most grounded driver can be thrown off guard and forget what should come next.
Making sure you are prepared is the first rule when it comes to car accidents. Having a simple check-list available can help you remember when you might be too flustered to think.
After an Accident
A car accident can be a traumatic experience, so before you call a loved one or a family member, make sure to call 911 and double check that everyone is OK.
Whether or not the accident is small or large, the police need to be notified of any injuries. Also, a policeman needs to document the accident, and fill out a police report for insurance and citation purposes. Make sure to assess the scene so you have a clear picture and explanation for the police.
After you’ve called 911, make sure to exchange contact and insurance information with the person or persons involved in the accident. By exchanging insurance information, you have the ability to cover yourself and the damage that may have been caused to your vehicle or vice versa. If the person involved in an accident with you does not have insurance, make sure the policeman is notified upon arrival.
Most importantly, make sure to stay level-headed as your adrenaline will be pumping. Being in a car accident is a traumatic experience, so by staying calm, you can help those around you.
