Accidents Happen…

icon-safetyHere are some important details to keep in mind if you are ever in an accident.

  1. Call the police or emergency services as soon as possible, especially if someone is hurt.
  2. Never move someone who’s been injured unless it’s absolutely necessary for that person’s safety.
    Moving an injured person can injure them even more. Wait for emergency personnel to arrive.
  3. Never leave the scene of an accident.
  4. If you can, and conditions are safe, move your vehicle off the road.
  5. Be sure to exchange your name, address, driver’s license and vehicle registration numbers, and insurance information with all of the drivers and property owners involved.
  6. If a parked vehicle or property has been damaged, many states require that you try to locate the owner, report the accident and notify local police.
