What To Do If You’re Involved In An Accident

By February 25, 2024No Comments

Being involved in an accident can be a nerve-wracking, disorienting experience. That’s why this Accident Report Guide was created. It is intended to help you gather the information needed in the event of an accident. While we hope you never need this information, it’s here if you do.

Keep your insurance ID card in the glove compartment of the insured vehicle. Follow the instructions listed and complete the Accident Report Guide after an accident.

In the event of an accident, please remember to:

DON’T “Make a Deal” for damages.
DON’T leave the scene of even a MINOR accident.
DON’T accept an offer of cash, check or “private” settlement.
DON’T deny injury to you or your passengers.
DON’T offer to pay ANYTHING even if you think you are at fault.
DON’T administer first aid unless you are LICENSED to do so.

DO (when conditions permit) move to the shoulder or other “SAFE AREA” to prevent further damage.
DO ask someone to summon police and seek medical assistance. Repeat at 5-minute intervals.
DO remember the 3C’s: Remain CALM, COURTEOUS, CONSISTENT in your discussion of the accident.
DO obtain complete information from those involved.
DO complete report at the scene- not later on.
DO obtain the names of witnesses including addresses and phone numbers.
DO notify the owner of the car that you are driving as soon as possible.
