What to Do If a Distracted Driver Caused an Auto Accident

An unexpected car accident cannot only damage your car but it can result in injuries to you and your passengers. If you have been hit by a distracted driver, you can ensure you are protected by understanding the important steps in handling auto accidents in Dayton Ohio

After being hit by a distracted driver, it is important to assess the situation and the damages to your vehicle. The driver who has hit you should also be reviewing his damages as well. At this time, it is also important to check for injuries in both cars as well.

If there are no injuries or large damages to the car then the next step is to move the vehicles out of the way of traffic, this is very important if you're accident has occurred on a freeway or in the middle of an intersection.

The next step is to call the police and after they have been informed of your accident, you and the other driver should exchange information. The information you exchange should include:

  • The driver's names
  • License Plate
  • Insurance info
  • Vehicle make and model
  • Location of the accident
  • Info of the police officers

After all of the information has been exchanged, it is important to think about your insurance company and the information they will need. By taking photos of the accident and the damages to both cars, you can document the scene and give your insurance agent evidence of the damages.

After the accident has been handled by the police the only thing left to do is to contact your insurance to file an accident report for the damages you have taken to your car. If you follow these suggestions, you will be able to handle any auto accidents in Dayton Ohio.
