WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF A COLLISION

DO:

  • TAKE PICTURES 
  • Contact your insurance company
  • Write a complete description of the accident while it's fresh in your mind.
  • Have even minor damage fixed. Letting your car go unrepaired can cost you in the long run. 
 DON'T:

  • Never discuss accident details with anyone other than the police and insurance company.
  • Don't be fooled by a lower estimate. You have the right to choose the body shop. Don't sign a release until every detail is repaired to your satisfaction.
  • Never allow your car to be towed to a repair shop you are not familiar with. Don't authorize repairs by signing a tow release unless you have decided to have your car repaired by the shop it's being towed to. 

If you have been in a collision, follow these simple steps to ensure your physical and legal safety. 


  CONTACT AUTHORITIES

 2  STAY SAFE

An apology can imply fault. Never admit fault. If you have to say something, ask "Are you okay?"
