In The Event Of An Accident Follow These Steps:
Make sure you are in a safe place before exiting your vehicle. If it is safe and possible to do so, get to the roadside out of the traffic.
Does Anyone Need Emergency Assistance?

Speak To Witnesses
Check for witnesses. Did anyone see it happen who will be willing to provide you with their details? If so, get a phone number and email address from them.

– Your smartphone could make all the difference.
20 years ago, the chance of having a camera in your car at the scene of an accident was a small one. Insurance companies had to rely on sketches drawn on pieces of paper!
These days nearly 70% of UK adults own a smartphone. Taking pictures instantly is an option that can sometimes be forgotten in the heat of the moment. It can be your greatest ally in making a successful claim as photographic evidence is used in the claims process.
If your phone is damaged in the accident, ask a witness to take pictures for you and give them your email address and ask them to send them to you.
