Car accidents can happen anywhere, anytime, even if you're the safest driver around. Other drivers may be careless or inexperienced, roads could be dangerous due to bad weather, or you could just be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
At The Scene
If you're involved in an accident, stop immediately. If the damage isn't extensive, move your car to the side of the road so you're not blocking traffic. Take a photo of the scene before moving your car, for insurance purposes. If you can't move your car, turn on the hazard lights, leave your vehicle and move to a safe place. Always stop to check on other parties involved, and to assess any damage caused. Make sure you get details about any other party involved in the accident, including their name, address, phone number, driver's licence number, licence plate number and insurance details.
Call Emergency Services If Required
Call for an ambulance if anyone is injured. You should call the police if any injuries have occurred, somebody has appears to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or if there is third party damage (power pole, street sign etc), or if the other party did not stop or is refusing to provide their personal details. Depending on the circumstances, a police report may be required but not always necessary.
