Accidents happen, so it’s important to know what to do if you are in a car accident.  It’s a stressful experience, and a time when you may not be thinking straight.  Being prepared beforehand, and knowing some easy-to-remember steps  from one of our top carriers, Travelers Insurance will have you prepared for when that time comes. 

Documenting the scene will be incredibly helpful, especially if there are no eye witnesses.  The more information the better – so be sure to exchange information and get relevant contact information for all parties: both drivers, as well as witnesses. 

If you don’t have an up to date copy of your insurance certificate you can contact the insurance company directly or your agent. 

When exchanging information, here’s the most important information drivers should exchange after an accident:

  • Full name and contact information
  • Insurance company and policy number
  • Driver’s license and license plate number
  • Type, color, model of vehicle
  • Location of accident
