In an accident? Here’s what to do!

If you are involved in an accident, there are certain tasks needed to ensure your protection and help you with your claim. Any information you can provide to your insurance company and attorney will work in your favor.

It is important to take as many photographs as you can. Photos tell a story, highlighting things that may have been missed or forgotten. These are the basics:

  • Landmarks, intersection and entire accident scene
  • Both vehicles, outside and inside if possible
  • Any visible injuries
  • License tags and driver’s licenses

Always be sure to document everything. This is a backup not only for you and your insurance company, but provides more information for the attending officer when they arrive. Make sure to document:

  • Street numbers
  • Names, numbers and addresses of other party
  • Insurance information of other party
  • Names, numbers, addresses and possible video statements of witnesses
  • Information on attending authorities and medical personnel

Taking these steps will help you give your insurance company accurate and complete information. For more tips, contact the Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency in Los Angeles.
