Seven Tips To Help You After A Car Accident

A car accident can be scary for a driver of any age. Staying calm afterwards can benefit everyone involved and can make a difficult situation easier.

Here are some tips to help you and your family if you’re involved in a minor accident.

1. If you’re not injured after an accident, take a moment to take some deep breaths to relax. Check your surroundings before exiting your car to make sure it’s safe.

2. Call the police immediately.

3. Move cars on the side of the road to a safe location.

4. Only discuss accident details with police or an insurance company representative.

5. Don’t admit fault. You may be entirely blameless.

6. If you can, get:

  • Identification information from everybody involved;
  • Insurance information from owners of other vehicles; and
  • Make, model, and license number of all vehicles involved.

7. If you’re able to do so safely, take photos of the accident scene and damage before the vehicles are towed.   Click here for full article
