Top tips from our experts in crash repairs in Baldoyle.
It can be difficult to remember what to do if you have an accident in your car. It can be a very stressful event and even traumatic, so we’ve compiled our top tips for what to if you are involved in a crash.
Check for injuries
Check both yourself and any other passengers in the car for any injuries. If you’re unsure, it’s safest to call 999 for an ambulance. Don’t move any injured parties as this may cause further injury, unless they are in immediate danger from other vehicles. If this is the case, an emergency operator should be able to guide you in the safest way to do this. Provide as many details as possible to the emergency services about the crash and number of people involved.
If you’ve been involved in an accident with another car, it’s important to remember not to take any blame for the accident. Exchange details with the other party, including:
– name, address, phone number
– car insurance company name and details
– insurance policy numbers
– car registration plate numbers
– car’s year, make, model and colour
– name and contact number of any witnesses to the accident
If you have a smartphone or camera, take photos of the crash scene where possible. Keep your safety and the safety of others your utmost priority while you do this. Take photos of any damage to your vehicle and the others involved.
