What are the primary causes of car accidents in Mansfield, LA?
What steps should you take following a car accident?
1. Move to a safe area before you stop the vehicle if you can.
If moving your car isn’t possible, flip on your hazards to warn other drivers that your vehicle isn’t going anywhere. Take a moment to catch your breath. Check to make sure it’s safe to get out of your car before opening the door.
2. Check on others involved in the car accident.
Check on all the other parties involved, including drivers, passengers, and pedestrians around to make sure that nobody is injured. Call 911 immediately if anyone may be injured at the scene. Even a seemingly minor symptom like dizziness or slight pain should be checked out by a healthcare professional to make sure there is no internal injury.
3. Call the police to the scene of the car accident.
Even in minor accidents, a police accident report can prove invaluable when dealing with your car insurance company and other drivers. Cooperate fully with the officers, but avoid admitting fault or blaming others while at the scene. Let the police objectively judge events and determine who, if anyone, is at fault in the crash.
4. Gather information.
- Driver and passenger names
- License plate numbers
- Insurance information
- Makes and models of all vehicles involved
- Contact information of any witness to the accident
- The name and badge number of any responding police officers
5. File your insurance claim.
Call your insurance provider from the scene of the car accident, or file it through your smartphone. If you aren’t sure who to call, check your insurance ID card for your insurer’s contact information.
