Few things in life are more frightening or traumatic than being in an auto accident. As the word itself implies, an accident is unforeseen, unexpected and unintentional – and as a result people are often unprepared and ill equipped to deal with its aftermath in a clear-minded manner.
No one wants to think about what they would do in the event of an accident, however, BEFORE an accident is exactly when you must familiarize yourself with the steps you should take if an accident were to occur.
1. IF I AM IN AN ACCIDENT, DO I HAVE TO GET THE OTHER DRIVER’S INFORMATION?
YES - Always get the other driver’s information, and give them your information!
This information includes:
- Telephone number
- Driver’s license number
- Registration Number
- Vehicle make and model
- Insurance company specifics, including policy number
