What To Do When In A Small Car Crash
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you ever find yourself in a car crash, there are different steps that should be taken. You will need to know what to do in dealing with the other driver and also what you should do in regards to the damage to your car.

When dealing with the other driver, you will need to exchange information. The information that needs to be exchanged is your name, address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, drivers license number and license plate number. You will want to ensure that you get all of this information from the other driver as well. If there are more than two vehicles involved, each driver will want to exchange this information with the driver of all of the vehicles. If the person driving the other vehicle is not the owner of the vehicle, you will want to also get the name, address, and any other contact information for the owner of the vehicle as well.

You will also want to take notes on the other vehicle such as the make, model, and color. Writing down as much information about the accident is beneficial as well. This information should include the location of the accident and how it happened. This will ensure that you have this information when needed later and it is best to write it down while it is still fresh in your mind.

While dealing with the other driver, you will want to ensure that you are polite and do not lose your cool. At this time it is not in anyone's best interest to point fingers and blame eachother.

After everything has been taken care of at the scene with the other driver, you will need to take care of the damage to your car. The accident needs to be reported to your insurance company. An insurance company like Liberty Insurance will work with the other driver's insurance company in order to determine payment for the necessary repairs.

Once you open a claim with your insurance company, the vehicle will need to be inspected. After this, the damages to your vehicle need to be assessed. You will then receive payment for what the assessment of damages was from your insurance company e.g Liberty insurance, Quinn Direct etc.. Once you have this money, you can go and have your vehicle fixed. Finding a reputable car repair shop will ensure that the repairs your vehicle receives is of good quality.

Getting into a car accident can be a difficult time for everyone involved, but staying calm and remembering these steps will ensure that you have the information you need.
