Car Accident Do’s and Don’ts
What to do if you’re in a car accident:
Automobile accidents are unforeseen and traumatic. After an accident it can be confusing to navigate medical concerns, insurance companies and the opinions of well meaning friends and family. Below are some suggestions to help guide you through this often overwhelming situation.
- Stop your vehicle immediately.
- If anyone is seriously injured, call an ambulance.
- Write down the license plate number of the other vehicle.
- Show your driver’s license and registration to the other driver and to the authorities if requested.
- Report the accident to the Arizona DMV or Local DVM as soon as possible.
- Take photos of your vehicle and any of the other vehicles or property involved in the accident.
- If you feel injured we recommend that you seek care immediately. Many conditions worsen in the hours and first few days following an accident as swelling begins in the injured tissues. Getting treatment sooner than later may prevent any serious permanent problems.
- If symptoms persist more than one week and you have not received treatment, do not wait any longer.
- Take photo’s of any injuries that are visible like cuts, bruises, torn clothing.
- Use ice within the first 48 hours following new injuries.
- If you feel dizzy, nausea or have a significant headache seek medical attention.
- Beware of taking aspirin if you do not normally take it.
- Write a complete description of the accident as soon as possible. Doing this immediately will help keep the accident details fresh in your mind.
- Notify your insurance company, even if the claim appears small and there are no apparent injuries.
- Settling the claim yourself can be dangerous. Follow all prescribed procedures when reporting an accident to your insurance company.
- Be aware of the “Appraisal Clause” in your insurance policy. If the insurance company and the body shop cannot agree on what the repairs should cost, this could provide a means for fair settlement.
- Never discuss the accident details or responsibility with anyone.
- Never discuss circumstances of the accident with anyone except the police and a representative of your insurance company.
- Never agree to a phone recording or give a signed statement to the claims adjuster representing the other driver’s insurance company. If you feel you are being pressured, you may wish to consult an attorney.
- Never allow your car to be towed to a repair shop you are not familiar with. Don’t authorize repairs by signing a towing release unless you have decided to have your car repaired by the shop your car is being delivered to.
