Here's some advice for if you get in a crash. Somethings you should be aware of and do right away.

What to do When You Get in a Crash If you get in a car accident, there are several steps that you should take before you take your car for Dallas auto body repair. I am going to talk about a few of the things you need to do. First, Plan Ahead The most important thing you can do when you get in a car accident is to be prepared before the accident even happens. This means having your vehicle properly insured. It is against the law to drive without insurance. Even more so, you need to have legal minimums for coverage amounts to cover both you and another driver if there has been an accident. You should also keep an emergency kit in your vehicle. This should include your insurance information, a camera to take pictures, a place to write down any details about the accident, and a simple first aid kit. If your cellphone has a camera, then you can probably leave this step out. After the Accident Occurs While being prepared for an accident is important, there are also steps that you need to take after the accident occurs. First, be aware of your surroundings. If it is possible to drive your vehicle, move it to a safe place off the road and out of traffic. This is very important because it will keep you safe and it will keep other vehicles from becoming involved in your accident. If it is not possible to move your vehicle, you need to find a way to keep the vehicles and their occupants safe. Your emergency kit could include road flares or an emergency cone to notify other drivers that there is an obstruction in the road. Once you have determined that everyone involved in the accident is not injured, you should call the authorities. If there is an emergency, call 911. If not, you can call regular police dispatch to the scene of the accident. Exchange insurance information with the other drivers involved. You are actually required by law to provide this information if it is requested of you. Also, make sure to describe the details of the accident. You will want to include information about the

weather and road conditions. You will also want to include details about the surrounding area; if the accident took place on the freeway, in an intersection, or during a lane change. Next you will want to include information about what actually took place during the accident. To the best of your ability, you should describe the accident exactly as it happened. Then, be sure to take pictures. Document the damage that occurred and the location of the accident. Make sure to take pictures of all of the vehicles involved in the accident. This way, you will be able to record all the details of the accident and not rely on competing stories. The day after the accident, you should look for Dallas auto body repair to fix your damaged car. Hopefully by now, your insurance company has worked out who is at fault for the accident so that the auto body shop can get to work repairing your car. Photo Credit: zlyoga , 7rains
