What to do after a Car accident

Car accidents are stressful and difficult to handle situations that when happen can leave you many questions at once: Should I call the police? Should I move my car? When should I file a claim?

At GUARDIAN INSURANCE AGENCY  located in Fairburn, Lagrange  and Norcross, we give you some tips that can help guide you through the most important decisions you should make if you have been in an accident:

1. Check yourself for injuries: If you're injured, call 911 or ask someone else to do so. If you're seriously injured, try not to move, and wait for emergency personnel.

2. If you're not too hurt to move, check on the well-being of your passengers: If anyone's injured, get on the phone with emergency services or ask a bystander to call for help.

3. Get to safety if you're able to, either on the side of the road or on a sidewalk: If your car is safe to drive and is causing a hazard where it is, pull it to the side of the road. Otherwise, leave it where it is and get yourself to safety.

4. Wait for help: Turn off your engine, turn on your hazard lights and use road flares to warn other vehicles to slow down.

5. Call the police: Whether an accident is considered a minor fender-bender or a major collision, calling the police is important and in some states, it's legally required.

6. Notify your insurer: You may also want to call your insurance agent while you're at the scene. That way, they can tell you exactly what they will need to process your claim.

7. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver before you leave:

-Full name and contact information
-Insurance company and policy number
-Driver's license and license plate number
-Type, color and model of vehicle
-Location of accident
