WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT
 

ONE IN EIGHT IS PRETTY HIGH!

According to the National Safety Council, one in eight drivers will be involved in a motor vehicle accident this year. That may mean you! Are you
prepared? Would you know what to do and what questions to ask?

 

Here are a list of some easy steps to remember, as compiled by the National Safety Council:

Make a quick diagram of all the cars involved.

Take plenty of pictures of both vehicles and the surroundings with your cell phone. They may be helpful to your Insurance company when determining liability.

Ask to see the other driver's license and mark down the number.

Exchange insurance company information. DON'T accept blame or make any additional statements about the accident to anyone else other than the police.

Get a copy of the police report and keep it for future records.

Stop your vehicle if it is clear, safe and legal.

Move the vehicle out of the traveled roadway, if it is clear, safe and legal. (In some states it is against the law to move the vehicle from the place where the accident occurred. Check the ordinance in your area.)

Turn off the ignitions of the cars involved.

Call the police.

Mark the scene of the accident which consists of the cars involved and all persons involved in the accident.

Gather names of all people in the motor vehicles and people who witnessed the accident.
