When winter arrives that often means slippery roads which can lead to accidents. If an accident should occur here are a few important steps to take to ensure that your claim is processed quickly and efficiently with MAIF:
Call the police: always call the local police, even if the accident is minor. A police report is helpful when processing your accident claim, ensuring accuracy
Document the scene: if possible, take photos of the scene, being careful NOT to photograph car tags or other drivers without permission
Do Not admit fault: whether you are at fault or not, do not admit fault and allow the police and insurance companies determine with whom the responsibility lies
Exchange information: you will want to have the tag number, driver’s license number and contact information of parties involved. Be sure to get the contact information for witnesses if applicable
Report the accident to MAIF: call 800-492-7120 as soon as possible
