What to Do When You’re in an Auto Accident

Car accidents happen from time to time in the DMV area. At Brown’s Automotive, we have a few tips to help you get through it all.

A certain order needs to be followed in the minutes following an accident. Remain calm and focus on getting all of the necessary information. Call 911 if there are injuries or call the non-emergency number to report the crash. Take photos, if possible, before any vehicles are moved. Once the vehicles have been safely moved to the side, share information with the other driver. If the other driver doesn’t want to share their insurance information with you, wait until a police officer arrives on the scene.

Once you have been instructed to leave the scene and you have all of the necessary information, be sure to call the insurance company to file the claim.
