What to Do After a Car Crash

What Do I Do After a Car Crash in Raleigh

In the heat of the moment, it may be hard to know what to do after a car crash. The first thing to remember when you are involved in a car accident is to stay at the scene until it is appropriate to leave. Even if you think no one was hurt and the damage was minimal, remain where you are until you have confirmed that everyone is safe. Other steps include:

person on cell phone
  • Calling the police if there has been significant auto damage or if you or someone else has suffered injury. Do not move anyone who is unconscious or severely injured. Wait for qualified help to arrive.
  • Exchanging information. Get the other driver’s name, address and contact number. It is important, if you can, to get the name and contact numbers of their insurance company, agent and the policy number.
  • Talking to any witnesses who may have been at the scene of the collision. Get their contact numbers as well.
  • Taking pictures. They can be a useful record of the damage.
  • Informing your insurance company of the collision. As soon as possible, contact the at-fault driver’s insurance company, too.
  • Requesting an authorization for repair from your insurance company. Getting the official go-ahead from the agency can help streamline the process of getting your vehicle back in road condition.
