27 Apr What to do After an Auto Collision
An auto collision is incredibly unfortunate. And in most cases, it is an extremely stressful situation for everyone involved. While it is normal to feel stressed, it’s also important to try to remain as calm as possible. The calmer that you present yourself the more likely that the events and processes that typically follow a collision will go smoother.
The first thing to remember in any collision is to keep yourself safe. If your vehicle is out of traffic then turn the vehicle off and place it in park. It’s important that you don’t accidentally walk out in traffic. If the vehicles involved are in traffic and can be moved then it’s always a good idea to move them to a safer location where those involved can share insurance information and, if the police are notified, the police can investigate. It’s also a good idea when necessary to alert other motorists of the collision; the flashing hazard lights help to warn other drivers of a problem.
If anyone is injured in the collision, call emergency services immediately. It’s always best to leave a medical diagnosis and potential treatment to medical professionals.
