Do you know the appropriate action to take to ensure you are protected, physically, financially and legally? |
Educate yourself on the basic steps you need to take immediately following an accident: 1. If it's safe to do so, pull your vehicle to the side of the road away from traffic. If you can't, keep your seat belt on, flip on the hazards, and call 9-1-1. 2. If you're in doubt whether any person involved is injured, call 9-1-1. If it clear that no people are injured, call the local police department. A 9-1-1 dispatcher can also redirect your call to the police. 3. If the police deem it unnecessary to report to the scene, make sure to fill out a police incident report at the station. 4. Exchange names, phone numbers, addresses, insurance policy numbers and information, and license plate numbers with the other drivers. If you are uninjured, the damage is minor, and you feel uncomfortable getting out of your vehicle, you can still share this information with the other drives through a rolled-up window. 5. Write down everything you remember about the crash and draw a diagram if you can. If there were any witnesses, get their names and numbers. 6. Never admit fault or accept blame; let the police and insurance companies decide. 7. Specialists in auto repair in North Vancouver are available to fix both minor and major vehicle damage.
