Didn't Get the Other Driver's Info in an Accident? Here's What to Do

Car Accident Advice When You're Involved in an Accident

Getting into a car accident is no fun. To make matters worse, you may have forgotten to get the other driver's information in order to file an auto insurance claim. Whether you were stressed, flustered, or they drove off in a hurry, here is some useful advice on what to do next.Check everyone for injuriesNo matter what, always give yourself and your passengers a once-over to check for injuries. Even if you feel fine, consider calling for medical attention. Whiplash and brain injuries aren't always present immediately.Call the policeWhen you're involved in any sort of car accident, always call the police. Even if everyone is unharmed and the damage is minor, you should still call the police out (or visit your nearest police station) to report the accident. When the officers arrive on the scene, be sure to ask for a copy of their report which will help you file your claim.Write down what you can rememberAs soon as possible, list everything you can remember about the vehicle, driver, time, location, and sequence of events. The more information, the better, so be sure to ask your passengers to do the same.Notify your insurance companyEven if you don't have the other driver's details, you should still let your auto insurer know what happened. You may have coverage that can recover your vehicle from damage and help with injury costs you may incur.Work with an agency who has your best interests in mind.
