Tips for Dealing with a Vehicle Crash

Emotions run high in the minutes following an accident. When you get into any kind of fender bender, it’s important to remain calm. At Valley Imports Mitsubishi, we recommend doing a few things.

Take photos, talk to the other driver, and move your vehicle so it isn’t blocking traffic. If your vehicle cannot be driven away, be sure to contact a tow company. You will have to report the accident to the police regardless of whether there have been injuries. If there are injuries, an ambulance will be dispatched. Information needs to be shared between drivers, too, including insurance policy details.

You can choose to file the claim with the insurance company from the scene of the accident or wait until you get home. Any photos you have collected and any information you have obtained from the other driver should be shared with the insurance claims agent.
