What to do if you're in an accident
Check for Injuries - If anyone involved has been injured call 911 immediately.
Turn on your hazard lights - This alerts other drivers to be cautious around the scene.
Call the police - Don't leave the scene until police have done their job. Even seemingly small collisions can cause expensive repairs. Make sure you get a police report.
Exchange information - Collect contact information from other drivers involved. Don't forget insurance policy information.
Find a witness - If someone nearby witnessed the incident, get them to provide a statement for the police. If they aren't able to stay, get their contact info.
Document - Take photos of the vehicles involved and of the scene. Take notes about the accident as soon as possible.
working with insurance
If you aren't at fault, contact the at-fault party's insurance company and give them a statement. Contact your insurance company if you are at-fault, or if there is any question about who may be liable. Even if you aren't liable, your insurance company is a great resource for advice.
your rights as a consumer
You always have the right to select the facility to repair your vehicle. If you want to have your vehicle repaired at a shop that isn't on a list provided by an insurer, you are free to do so.
