Step 5 – Call your car insurance provider to report the accident.

Insurers can be sticklers for following the terms of auto policies to the letter, and some car insurance policies will stipulate that drivers have very limited time frames for reporting collisions.

Therefore, if you are unsure about the terms of your auto policy (or if you know that you are bound by such strict time frames for reporting collisions), make sure that you call your insurance provider as soon as you can after motor vehicle accidents to inform them about the collision.

When reporting the accident, here’s what you should know and be prepared for:

  • Insurers will want to know as many of the details regarding the accident as possible, so be ready to disclose as much of these details as you can. From when and where the accident occurred to how many other drivers were involved, such details will be important to insurance providers.
  • Insurers may be eager to assign fault, and they may even go so far as to try to lead you into accepting some portion of blame for the collision. Make sure you avoid doing this at any cost, as it could cause you to lose out on compensation in the future.

Step 6 – Keep all documents and bills related to the accident together.

After motor vehicle accidents, you may receive a lot of paperwork from various parties, including car repair shops, medical professionals, police, and even your employer. As you get all of these documents, estimates, bills, etc., make sure that you keep everything.

A helpful and easy way to do this is to get a folder or binder where you can keep all (and only) these documents. By saving all of this paperwork, you can be sure to have all of the evidence you may need in the future if insurance providers try to undercut or deny your claim and/or if you end up needing to move forward with a car accident case against negligent parties.
