Accidents happen, and when they do, CSN Saunders Collision Centre is here to help. With our 24-hour towing and Insurance Claim support, you can feel confident that you, and your vehicle, are in good hands after an accident.
Step 1: Always Stop
If you are involved in a collision and do not stop, you may be subject to criminal prosecution. Stop your vehicle, stay calm and when it’s safe, exit your vehicle.
Step 2: Check for Injuries
Assess the extent of injuries and when in doubt, call 911 to report the location of the collision. Caring for victims is a priority, but sometimes it may be unsafe to remove people from vehicles involved in a collision, so wait for help to arrive. Don’t move anyone who has sustained an injury unless it is necessary to keep them from further harm.
Step 3: Pull Over and Record Damage
If it’s safe, move your vehicle to the side of the road, away from traffic. Turn on your vehicle’s hazard lights and use cones/warning triangles for safety. If there are parties involved that have injuries, call 911. Don’t discuss fault, responsibility, or circumstances of the accident with the other driver(s).
Step 4: Exchange Information and Document the Incident
Be sure to obtain important information from all involved drivers:
- Names, address, contact information
- Driver’s licence number & licence plate number
- Insurance information
- Contact information of registered vehicle owners
If a driver fails to provide any of the requested information, it may be advisable to notify the police of the collision. Contact information of passengers and any witnesses should also be obtained.
Step 5: Contact the Professionals at CSN Saunders Collision Centre
Don’t drive your vehicle if it seems unsafe and never sign any releases with towing companies, repair centres or insurance companies that you have not read or do not fully understand.
