If you follow these tips but still find yourself in a crash, just remember that what you do after an accident can make a big difference in keeping everyone safe and in helping you and your insurance company work through a claim.
Remember to follow these tips from the experts at The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies if you get into an accident:
Stay calm. Stay at the scene but move off the roadway. Warn oncoming traffic by activating your hazard warning
lights and/or setting flares.
Call the police.
Contact your insurance company to file a claim. The earlier your insurance company knows about the
accident, the earlier it can get to work to resolve it.
Do not admit fault. Only discuss the accident with the police and your claims representative.
Exchange information with the other driver(s). And remember to get contact information for any witnesses.
