WHEN ACCIDENTS HAPPEN

How to Respond in a Tough Situation

Being in a car accident is the last thing anyone wants - but when it does happen, there are ways of making sure that the legal and insurance issues are handled with as little stress as possible.

  • First of all - stay calm.
  • If someone is injured, be sure to call for medical help.
  • Make sure you call the police.
  • Don't publicly make any statements where you either accuse the other person of causing the accident or take all the blame yourself. It could open you up to legal problems.
  • Whatever you do, don't leave the scene until you've had a chance to talk with the officer and you've gotten their name. It's important to make sure that your side of the story goes on the record. Afterward, it's a good idea to get a copy of the police report.
  • Make sure you have a pre-printed copy of your insurance information in the glove compartment, along with a camera you can use to provide pictures for the insurance company. A disposable camera with a flash for nighttime or interior shooting is usually best for this.
  • In dealing with the other driver, make sure you get their name, address, driver's license number and insurance information - and that they get the same information from you.
  • Also, make sure to get information from any witnesses as well.
  • Make sure you get pictures of any physical evidence of what could have caused the accident.
  • Write down pertinent details such as where the accident took place, what the weather was like, etc.
  • Once the information's exchanged, report the accident to the insurance company immediately, even if it's not your fault.
  • Make sure you understand how you're covered, and don't be afraid to ask the insurance company to explain the conditions of your coverage and payments.
  • Don't be afraid to seek legal advice - and don't sign anything if you don't understand it.
  • When you're using a body shop to get repairs to your vehicle, be aware that the insurance company can recommend a shop, but you are under no legal obligation to use its services. You have the legal right to choose the shop to do your repairs.
  • Also be aware that insurance companies sometimes try to dictate what type of parts are used in a vehicle's repair. They might insist that a shop not use Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts, as they are more expensive.

    You have a right to know what kind of parts are being used on your vehicle, and to know if your insurance policy dictates what kind of parts can be used in your car. If your policy lets you choose, you have the right to decide for yourself.
  • An insurance company also has the right to inspect your vehicle, but it is not required to do so. In addition, they cannot require you to visit one of their own claim centers.
  • And finally: Make sure you learn from this accident, but also let yourself move on from what happened. Everyone has an accident once in a while - it's just something that happens.

Remember - Drive Safely!

    Thank you for helping fix something that I didn't know was broken. I just went in for an oil change. Ended up needing to fix an oil leak. I thought it was because my car is older, but now it's running much better. I'm very happy with the service and quality. Thank you ??

    I have taken 2 different cars to this place. The dealer had told me about things that were wrong with my Toyota Scion and Angelo confirmed the damage and charge me about half of what the dealer wanted. My son has an older car and my old mechanic wanted about $2000 for different repairs but when I took it to BrakesXpress I was told that only a couple of things needed to be done and the price was great! Honest mechanics are a rare find so I am really happy to have found one.

    have a 1999 Toyota Camry le. And every time I've been told by different mechanics that something's wrong with my car, I take it to this place for a 2nd opinion, and it's always been less cost to me than other businesses. Angelo the owner tells me even sometimes that nothing serious is wrong, and fixes it within the day. I'm very happy to have an honest mechanic like him close to my home.

    This is such a great family owned business. He was able to diagnose the problem quickly. I have been here several times and the customer service is always excellent and the repairs are quick and reasonably priced. They didn't sell me something I didn't need. If I need anything done on a car, I will always be quick to return here. Love this place and highly recommend!
