What is considered a minor accident? If the car could be driven from the scene of the accident, none of the vehicle occupants suffered any injuries as a result of the collision, and if any child car seat(s) or child booster seat(s) have not been damaged.
What To Do If You Are Involved In A Minor Accident:
· Stay at the scene
· STOP immediately but don’t obstruct traffic. Move when it is safe to do so (if on the highway move towards the side of the road away from any traffic)
· Check on all drivers and passengers
· Exchange insurance information from all parties involved
· Obtain names, telephone numbers, and driver’s license numbers of all drivers
· Obtain names, addresses, telephone numbers of other passengers and any witnesses
· Obtain license plate(s)
· Take pictures of all vehicles involved in the accident
Once you have informed your insurance company, the insurance company can suggest an auto body shop to take your vehicle for a property damage estimate.
