What To Do In Case Of An Accident


One in eight is pretty high!

According to the National Safety Council, one in every eight drivers will be involved in a motor vehicle accident this year.

That may mean you! Are you prepared? Would you know what to do and what questions to ask?

Here is a list of 11 easy steps to remember, as compiled by the National Safety Council:

 

Stop your vehicle if it is clear, safe and legal.

Move the vehicle out of the traveled roadway.

Turn off the ignitions of the cars involved.

Make a first aid check of all persons involved in the accident.

Call the police and, if necessary, emergency medical services.

Mark the scene of the accident with flares or reflective triangles.

Gather the names of all persons in the vehicles and witnesses.

Make a quick diagram of the scene of the accident

Ask to see the other drivers license and write down the number

Exchange insurance company information. DO NOT discuss "fault" or make statements about the accident to anyone but the police.

Get a copy of the police report of the accident from the local precinct.
