Accident Checklist

If you are in an accident:

STAY CALM. Call an ambulance if needed. Always call the police. If police are not dispatched, be sure to file an incident report.

STAY SAFE. Traffic, fire, injury, debris and weather pose continuing risks. Do not take photos of the scene if doing so will put you or others at risk of injury or further damage.

STAY SMART. Be courteous, but do not admit fault at the scene. Protect your identity; do not allow your driver's license to be photographed.

Exchange the following: Name, Vehicle Make/Model/Year/Color, VIN, Insurance Company, Agent, Agent's Phone, Policy Number.
