In Case Of An Accident

What To Do In The Event Of An Auto Collision
1. SAFETY FIRST

If possible, move your vehicle out of traffic and turn on its flashers. Put out warning triangles or flares if you have them. Then stand a safe distance away while you talk to other drivers or wait for help.

2. ARE YOU INJURED?

Double-check yourself and others around you to make sure no one is hurt. Even a fender bender might have caused an injury that's not noticeable right away. Summon medical help if there is any doubt.

3. CALL THE AUTHORITIES

Call the police, especially if there has been substantial damage or anyone is injured or acting confrontational. Ask for the investigating officer's name and contact information, and for the accident report number so that you can follow up.

4. EXCHANGE INFORMATION

Obtain the name, address, phone number, drivers license number, plate number, and insurance information of any other drivers involved in the accident, along with the names of anyone with injuries and any witnesses. But don't argue over who is at fault or admit blame.

5. RECORD THE SCENE

If possible, take photos of the scene (a cell-phone camera can come in handy) or draw a diagram showing the cars' positions. Contact your insurer right away.

6. CALL FRADELLA'S

After recording the scene, call a Fradella's Collision Centers location and we will guide you through the next steps of getting your vehicle repaired quickly and safely.
