Fender benders are bound to happen. Especially during the busy holiday season. People are rushed, stressed, and the roads may be slippery and icy. From parking lot back up bumps to highway traffic fender benders, it is important to know what to do incase of a minor accident. Maryland Auto Insurance Fund offers some safety tips for fender benders.
For minor accidents, it is always best to relocate the cars involved to a safe space. If you are on the highway, pull off to the shoulder. In a parking lot, move your cars out of the main aisle so that traffic patterns are not disrupted. Keeping your car where it may require traffic to reroute could cause additional accidents. Once safe, notify the police.
Make sure you exchange information with all cars involved.
MAIF recommends that you gather the following information for each driver:
- Phone Number
- License Plate Number
- Driver’s License Number
- Make and Model of Vehicles
Having this information will help ease the process of reporting your accident to your insurance provider. It is always smart to be covered and have all the information you may need. Keep yourself covered with Maryland Auto Insurance Fund. Even if you have had many fender benders, or have been dropped by other insurance companies, MAIF will get you covered.
