When you're involved in a motor vehicle accident, things can become stressful and emotional as quickly as the crash happened. That's why we recommend that you carry an accident checklist in your vehicle which will instruct you to take photographs and about what information you should document. If your insurance company has not provided you with an accident checklist, you can find one on the National Insurance Crime Bureau website by clicking here.
"Always tend to the injured first and notify police, not all agencies will respond to non-injury accidents, but make the call just the same," said CSLEA Foundation Chairman Kenny Ehrman. "If possible, move your vehicle out of the lanes of traffic, take a deep breath and don't feel rushed or embarrassed about getting the information you and your insurance company will need to process your claim."
