Be Prepared: Know What Steps to Take After a Car Accident
October 16, 2013
It’s completely normal to feel flustered after being involved in a car accident. Spend the time now to learn exactly what steps you’ll need to take.
First, check that everyone in your vehicle is safe. If there are injuries, call 911 right away. To prevent further injuries, get out of the flow of traffic if possible.
Next, exchange basic information with all other drivers. Copy down driver’s license information, each vehicle’s license plate and basic description, and each driver’s insurance carrier and policy number. Get the name and phone number of witnesses as well.
You should never admit fault, even casually, at the scene of an accident. This is for your insurance company to determine. If you’re looking to get more advice about car insurance, contact Central Insurance Agency today!
