Here is our step-by-step guide to what to do in the aftermath of a collision.
Get to a safe place outside the vehicle. If the accident occurred on a busy highway or road, carefully make your way to the side of the road and wait there for help.
Call 911. Even if no one has been injured, you must get the authorities on the scene as soon as possible. If you or other passengers are injured, let them know.
Call your insurance or roadside assistance service to request a tow truck, if your car is too damaged to drive safely home.
If possible, exchange contact information with the other driver while you’re waiting for help. Ask for their name, phone number, and email address.
Document the accident to the best of your ability. Take pictures of any and all damages.
Once you are home safe, contact your insurance agent to submit a claim.
