|Posted on: Jun. 27, 2017 in Accidents, Safety|
Anyone who has ever been in a car accident can tell you they are scary and stressful. Minor fender benders are enough to leave you rattled. When your adrenaline is pumping and you’re worked up, you may not be thinking clearly or remember the important steps to take. Knowing what to do before you need it is a great first step.
Here are some tips to help you get through an accident.
In some areas, the police will decline to come to the accident, especially if it’s not severe. In this case, you’ll need to exchange information with the other driver. View and, if possible, take pictures of their driver’s license, vehicle registration, and insurance card. Makes notes about any discrepancies, such as someone driving a car that is not in their name, as well as details about the accident. Get contact information for witnesses. Again, do not admit fault and do not agree to accept or make payments for any damage.
Remember that the other drive is also probably as upset as you are about the accident, so treating others with respect can go a long way, regardless of who is at fault. Your safety, and everyone else’s is most important. Once you determine every is okay or get the medical help that’s needed, you can take the necessary steps to document the incident and get back on the road.
