What to Do if You’re in a Car Accident

If you’re ever in a car accident, the first thing you should do is stop your vehicle. Once you have stopped, you should then turn on your hazard lights. If possible, you should move your vehicle to the side of the road. If you cannot move your vehicle, make sure that other drivers are aware of your situation by placing cones or flares around your vehicle.

After you have stopped and made sure that other drivers are aware of your situation, you should then check for injuries. If anyone is injured, you should call 911 immediately. Once the police and ambulance have arrived, they will take over the situation.

If there are no injuries, you should exchange information with the other driver. You should exchange your name, address, phone number, and insurance information. You should also get the other driver’s information. If there are witnesses to the accident, you should get their contact information as well. It’s important to still call 911 even if there aren’t any injuries. The police will arrive and complete an accident report, which can be helpful when you are filing a claim with Farmers’ or in the future if you need to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Once you have gathered all of the necessary information, you should then call your insurance company to report the accident.
