Safety First

In the event you or a loved one is involved in an accident, prioritizing safety is paramount. If you are capable of driving the vehicle, move it to a secure location away from oncoming traffic. In cases where driving the car is not possible, carefully assess the surroundings for oncoming traffic and ensure the safety of yourself and other passengers by moving away from potential hazards. 

Emergency Services

Immediately call 911 and request emergency medical assistance. Provide the 911 dispatcher with as many details as possible, including the precise location, known injuries, and a description of the vehicles involved. 


Assess yourself and others for any injuries. Even if you do not believe your injuries are severe, seeking medical attention is crucial. Some injuries may not be evident immediately, and a medical examination can accurately assess your condition. 

Document the Details

Documenting the details is crucial. Utilize your smartphone to capture images or videos of the accident scene, damages, and injuries. Documentation can provide valuable information and proof for future reference.

Report to Your Insurance Company

You will need to contact your insurance company as soon as possible to report the accident. Most insurers offer a 24/7 claims hotline dedicated to emergencies, ensuring you can call anytime. You will want to provide the accident’s details, time, date, location, and your policy number. Make sure you give factual information when explaining what occurred during the accident.
