If you’ve had an accident, first of all – don’t panic!
It’s important to stay calm and put your health and wellbeing – and that of other people involved – above everything else.
The next steps you should take are:
If your accident is a serious one, it’s likely the police and other emergency services will be called. They will ensure the necessary administrative procedures are followed, taking the names and contact details of people involved. It’s worth noting that if anyone is injured, then you need to notify the police.
But for less serious accidents – especially where there is no immediate sign of injury from anyone involved – it will be up to you to collect the names, addresses, phone numbers and insurance details of all involved. Make sure you do this at the scene. And be sure to take the names and contact details of any witnesses to the accident too.
