Knowing the right steps to take in case of a car accident can save you time, money, and a hassle in the long run. At MAIF we want our drivers safe on the road. Unfortunately, car accidents are common and many drivers don’t know what to do in case of an accident. For your convenience, we have compiled a short checklist you should keep in mind in case of an accident.
- If possible, move your car to a safe location. You want to make sure you are out of the way of oncoming traffic to avoid injury to you or other drivers.
- If anyone is injured, call the proper authorities. You want to make sure any injured person gets the care they need as soon as possible.
- Exchange insurance information. Make sure you get the proper documentation of the accident. In the case that you have to file a claim, it is important that you exchange the proper information with the other person in the accident.
- Make sure you contact your insurance company. In case of an accident, it is important that you contact your auto insurance company to see what they will and will not cover. You will more than likely need to file a claim with your auto insurance company.
