Don’t Panic! : The Ultimate Checklist for Handling a Car Accident

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

You are driving in your car, just minding your own business. Then, without warning and without the slightest hint of a reason, it happens — you are now involved in an accident. You look around in fear. The other driver seems to be okay, but where do you go from here? What should you do? What are the first steps that you should take?

Here's a brief description of some things you can do in the event that you get into an accident.

1. Stay calm and check for injuries

You’re still alive! So check yourself and others involved for any injuries. If there are any, all you need to do is call 999 for medical assistance immediately.

2. Move to safety

If possible, move yourself and your vehicle to a safe location away from traffic to prevent further accidents. Switch on hazard lights and also use a warning triangle.

3. Gather information

Don’t wait for the police! Exchange information with the other party involved in the accident, including their name, contact details, license plate number, and insurance information. If there are any witnesses, try to obtain their contact information as well.

4. Be the paparazzi of the day

Take photos or make a note of the accident scene, including the position of the vehicles, damages, and any relevant details. These photos are not to be viral-ed on social media but serve as valuable evidence for insurance purposes.

5. Notify your insurance company

Don’t call your lover! Call your insurance company about the accident first. They'll help you get everything sorted out so you can get back on the road as soon as possible.

6. Avoid unknown tow trucks

Never fall for those scammers! Your insurance company will send a tow truck to your location. Don't accept the help of strangers offering to help you with your vehicle, and don't let random operators tow your car away.

7. Lodge a police report

Filing a report within 24 hours of an accident is indeed a crucial step in the insurance claim process and is often mandatory. The sooner you report it, the sooner they can start processing your claim—and hopefully get it paid out faster!
