Anyone unfortunate enough to be involved in an auto accident should have some knowledge of what is important to be done at that time. Having things in order and realizing what steps should be taken if possible can help provide some relief in a difficult time. If possible, one should get out of the auto and again if possible speak for a moment to the other driver involved. A call should then be placed to one’s Colorado Springs Auto Insurance agent or the company itself directly. Everyone should then wait patiently for the arrival of the authorities.
If the accident is at a busy intersection or on a busy road, caution must be exercised getting out of one’s vehicle and standing near the scene. If it appears dangerous to exit the vehicle remain in it until the arrival of the authorities. The information exchange with the other driver can hold off until then.
Getting in touch with the insurance company as soon as possible is important so that they can begin the work necessary on the case. The quicker this happens, the faster the process of fixing the damaged car and paying any monies involved will happen.
Always remember that the scene of the accident cannot be left until an authority has arrived and documented the situation and what happened. Quite frankly, it is illegal and breaking the law to leave the scene beforehand.
After all the legal issues have been taken care of properly, the work in conjunction with the Colorado Springs auto insurance agent or company can and will begin in earnest.
