What To Do in Case of an Auto Accident
An auto accident is a very traumatic time for anyone involved, especially if there are injuries. BWO Insurance Group, LLC is concerned for the safety of not only its clients but also the general public. This is why we have devoted a section in our website to highlighting the basic steps that a driver should take whenever they are involved in an auto accident.
Make a deal for damages.
Accept an offer of cash or any other settlement.
Offer to pay any damages.
Administer first aid unless licensed to do so.
Disavow injury to yourself or your passengers.
Move auto(s) to a shoulder or other safe area to prevent further damage or injuries.
Ask someone to summon police and seek medical assistance.
Obtain names of witnesses including addresses and phone numbers.
Obtain complete information from those parties involved in the accident, including license plate number and state of the other vehicle(s), phone numbers and addresses and insurance company information.
Please remember to be calm, courteous and consistent in your version of the accident and to call your auto insurance company or agent as soon as is practical.
