What to do after a car accident in Boston

Your heart can’t stop beating, and you can’t believe you just got into an accident. Look around.  Are you injured? No, good.   Is everyone else ok? yes, Even better.   Now here’s what you need to do once everything settles down.

You should:
1. Emergency Kit in Your Glove Compartment.
Keep your auto insurance information in the glove compartment, drivers should carry a pen and paper for taking notes, a cell phone to make calls,  a camera to take photos of both automobiles at the scene, and information about medical conditions if there are serious injuries.

2. Safety First.
If the accident is minor with no serious injuries, move both cars to a safe place  out of traffic.   Leaving cars parked in the middle of the road can result in additional accidents and injuries.

3. Exchange Information.
Exchange this information: name, address, phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver license number and license plate number for the driver and the owner of each vehicle. Make immediate notes about the accident, description of each car, including year, make, model, color, including specific damages, witness information, etc.
Also the exact location of the collision and how it happened.

4. Photograph and Document the Accident.
Document the damage to all the vehicles.  You want your photos to show the overall context of the accident so that you can make your case.  If there were witnesses, get their contact information; they may be able to help you if the other drivers dispute your version of what happened.

Now you asked yourself… where do I fix my car in boston?
