What to do after a fender bender
Fender benders happen. Here are some steps to take when they do..
Stop the Car
Even in the smallest of fender benders, you should stop the car immediately and pull over.
Secure the Scene
If someone is hurt, stop where you are and call 911. If everyone is fine, you’re best to call 911 and pull over to get out of traffic.
Trade Info and Document the Incident
So everyone’s fine, so now it’s time to check the cars. Make sure you get contact, insurance, and vehicle information from the other driver. You should also take some photos of any damage. It is very helpful to find any witnesses who might have seen the accident happen.
After you’ve called your insurance company and received a claim number, you can get back to your day and do your research on an Auto Body of your choice to repair your vehicle.
