Being in a car accident is a horrible thing. There’s absolutely no better way to say it. Thankfully, we don’t go through them that often. As a matter of fact, most people who follow the rules of the road will never find themselves in a car accident in their lives! The only problem with this is that if it does happen to you, chances are, it will be your first car accident and you may not know what to do. Well, here are a few steps to follow if you find yourself behind the wheel and in a collision.
Step #1: Call 911
It’s important to remember that even if it’s a minor collision, it’s important to file a police report of the accident before leaving the scene. This will protect you should any questions from your insurance company about the accident arise.
Step #2: Consider Calling An Attorney
Although, you’re not going to need an attorney in most cases, in some cases, it may be a good idea. Severe car accidents can cause some serious injuries. They can cause you to miss work and several other headaches. If you’re involved in a severe collision or any collision that causes injury, consider the costs of those injuries and whether or not it will be a good idea to contact an attorney for assistance in getting reimbursed.
Step #3: Call Your Favorite Collision Center
Unfortunately, if you’re involved in a car accident, even a minor one, chances are there is going to be damage to your car. Although you can see the scratches and dents, there can be underlying damage to your car that can cause major issues if left alone. Calling a collision center and setting an appointment to have your car inspected will give you the piece of mind that the damages are either not long lasting and will be fixed. Oh yea, and by your favorite collision center, we mean us!
