Having a car accident can be exceptionally frightening. Of course, the most important thing is to ensure that no one is hurt. Having a car accident can be overwhelming and it can be hard to know what to do. As experts in smash repairs in Melbourne, we advise you to take the following steps in the case of an accident:
- See if Everyone is OK
Check that everyone is ok in your vehicle first. If you can safely leave your vehicle check on any other vehicles involved. Get medical attention if need be – dial an ambulance on 000 if the injuries are serious.
- Obtain the Other Person’s Contact Details
Take down the make and registration number of the vehicle and the person’s name and telephone number. Give them your details also. It may be best to text each other while you are at the scene of the accident so that you can ensure that the numbers they have given you are correct.
- Contact Your Insurance Company
You should do this as soon as possible. They will advise you on what forms you need to fill out to make your claim. Contact them sooner rather than later while the details of the accident are fresh in your mind. They may ask for the name of your panel beater in Melbourne.
- Contact a Tow Truck if Necessary
If your car is not driveable or does not seem safe to drive, call a tow truck and get them to tow your car home.
