What to Do in a Car Accident

Oh no! You’re in a car accident! What should you do now? Read on so that you’ll be prepared if it ever happens to you.
 What should I do? - KEEP CALM. Check for injured passengers and help them first. Have your hazard lights on while you stop to do the necessary.
Notify Police if Necessary - If there have been injuries or damages to property, call your local authorities and inform them a crash has happened and take responsibility for your actions.
Get help - If someone is injured, call an ambulance and get that person to safety and out of the vehicle if you can. If you’re not sure what else to do, get in touch with your insurance agency who can walk you through what to do.
Exchange Details - You are required to exchange details with the other parties in the accident no matter who caused it. Do not admit who is at fault just in case there are legal proceedings. Your insurance company can handle things once they have all the information.
With The Smarter Finance Company, you can ensure that you have a robust car insurance coverage and roadside assistance too if you need it! Call us to find out more!
