What to do after a collision
Many people claim to know what to do after a crash but unless they work in the industry or are police then the chances are that they don’t know the full picture. The fact of the matter is that making the right choices after a crash could save you time, money and a whole lot of extra unnecessary stress. Don’t make silly mistakes. Follow these guidelines and you will be alright.
Never drive away: Irrespective of whether it was a minor tip or a major crash, the one thing that you must not do after a crash is drive away. This is not only negligent and reckless but could land you in serious trouble with the law. This is especially true if any injuries have been incurred. Don’t risk a criminal prosecution and a guilty conscience. Do the right thing and check that everyone is alright.
If there are any injuries then call the police: This point is very important. If you have been involved in a crash and of the persons involved have been injured – no matter how minor – then you must call the police and emergency services. It is also necessary to call the police if you believe that the damage involved is in excess of $2,000 or if you suspect the other party of driving recklessly or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Only leave your car when it is safe to do so: One of the most dangerous things you can do is to exit your vehicle too soon. This could exacerbate injuries or cause another accident.
