WHAT TO DO IN AN EMERGENCY? CARRY OUT THESE 4 STEPS
At Toomey Motor Group, we understand accidents happen which can leave you fairly scattered. We never forget how important our customers are, therefore take pride in meeting and exceeding our customers' requirements.
1.Move to a safe area – If it's safe to do, and you aren't seriously injured, move your car away from the scene of the accident. For example, move your vehicle to the shoulder of the road. If you are unable to drive, turn your hazards on to make other drivers aware that your vehicle will not be moving any time soon.
2.Check on all other parties involved -Always check if anyone is injured, even if they are experiencing minor symptoms like dizziness should be checked out by a health care professional.
3.Call Police to the scene – Even in minor accidents, a police report can prove invaluable when dealing with your car insurance company and other drivers.
4. Gather information
If possible, gather as much as information as possible including:
- Driver and passenger names
- License plate numbers
- Insurance info
- Makes and models of all vehicles involved
- Contact info for any eyewitnesses
- Location of the accident
- The name and badge number of any responding police officers
