Auto Claims Reporting

Immediately after an accident, take the following steps:

  • Check to see if anyone is injured.  If so, call for medical attention immediately.
  • If possible, move your vehicle out of harm’s way and turn off the ignition.
  • Remain calm. Do not argue with the other parties involved. Do not admit liability or responsibility. Leave liability discussions to the insurance professionals.
  • Contact the police. By reporting the accident to the police and filing a report, you will help protect yourself from potential liability claims and legal action.
  • Inform the police of any injured parties.
  • Exchange the following information with the involved parties:
  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Driver's License numbers
  • Auto insurance company information
  • Note weather, road conditions and time of the accident.
