What Should You Do After a Car Accident?

Oh no! You’ve had an accident. What should you do first? Many people find it hard to think logically when involved in an accident. For this reason, it is essential to have a plan in place that protects you and your car before an auto accident occurs.

 

What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?

Although no one can prevent accidents, there are some steps to prepare in case one occurs. First, we recommend keeping your auto insurance up to date. It is wise to be aware of what your policy covers. Secondly, we recommend keeping copies of your auto insurance ID card on your mobile phone and in your vehicle’s glove box. 

Additionally, we recommend having a post-accident plan. Immediately after a vehicle collision, consider the following actions:

  • Turn on your car’s emergency flashers to alert oncoming traffic.
  • If possible, move your vehicle out of the roadway to prevent it from being a hazard.
  • If you cannot move the car, move any passengers safely from the accident scene.
  • Call 911 for emergency assistance if anyone is injured. 
  • Contact your auto insurance company to report the accident, and if needed, request a tow to a repair facility in your local area.
