What to do in the Aftermath of a Collision

Even a small automobile accident can leave the driver shaken, but it's at exactly that moment that clear thinking is necessary. Understanding the steps you have to take after an accident before you ever get in one will leave you better prepared should it happen.

Nothing is more important than ensuring everyone is alright. Call emergency services if necessary and take care of small cuts and bruises with a car first aid kit, if you have one. You'll next need to secure your immediate area. Move the vehicles to a safe spot if you can, and set flares or warning triangles to alert passing drivers. Call the police, exchange information with the other driver and document all damage. Contact your insurance company, submitting photos of the scene if possible.
