What Should I Do After a Car Accident? – Now You Know – Video 10

By January 21, 2019October 6th, 2020Insurance

Cody, with ECI Agency, taking on your questions today. Today’s question is, what do you do if you’re involved in a car accident? The first thing you need to do is call 911. Mainly because this provides a documented report of your accident to your insurance companies to review. Without this report, your accident could become a he said/she said situation. Next of all, since we all have smart phones, take out your phone and take a picture of four different things.

  1. The other person’s insurance card
  2. The other person’s driver’s license
  3. Any damage that occurred to not only your car, but the other car(s) as well
  4. The other person’s driver’s tag

The last thing you need to do is contact your agent. Your agent is your #1 resource when you’re involved in a car accident.
