What to Do if You’re in an Accident
If you’re just been involved in an accident, make sure that you and everyone involved is safe. From that point, Patrick MINI has some advice as to how you should proceed.
You want to get away from your vehicle. You’re probably somewhere in the road, so try to get yourself to a nearby safe location.
Give local law enforcement a call so they can come to the scene. They will want to make sure everyone is ok; they’ll figure out the best way to clear the scene and they’ll fill out a police report after interviewing both parties. They may also interview a witness at the scene.
Let your insurance carrier know that you were involved in an accident at that moment. They’ll have some questions for you regarding specific details, and they can begin the process of filing a claim on your behalf.
