Minor Car Accident Checklist

In addition to our complimentary step-by-step resource on what to do right after a motor vehicle or car accident here is a checklist you can use during a minor accident.

  1. Even for small or minor accidents, you should call 9-1-1. Let the police decide if they should come to the scene or send an ambulance.
  2. Take pictures of the cars and scene of the accident, even if the damage seems minimal.
  3. Remember to collect the other driver’s information, including their Drivers Licence and insurance.
  4. Contact your auto insurance company to report the accident. Have them inspect your car for damages and make necessary repairs.
  5. Open an Accident Benefits claim and seek medical attention. You might be more hurt than you think, and if you delay, your injuries could worsen but your insurance might refuse to pay for therapy which will hinder your recovery after your car accident.
  6. It is always better to be safe than sorry.
