Can a Car Insurance Company Tell You Where to Get Repairs?

A car accident is among the most traumatizing events a person can experience.

What Should You Do After an Auto Accident?

The moments following a car accident can be confusing, if not plainly chaotic. It’s important for everyone involved to gather and share a few crucial pieces of information. Once it’s determined that nobody needs medical help, the drivers of all vehicles should exchange:

  • Contact information
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • Vehicle descriptions

Additionally, it will be important to document the scene as thoroughly as possible. Make notes about the date, time, and location of the accident. Most of us have smartphones equipped with cameras. Use it to take photos of the vehicles involved and the scene. Also, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario suggests noting:

  • Any injuries, no matter how minor
  • Number and names of all people involved
  • Extent of damage to all vehicles
  • Name and badge number for the responding/investigating police officers
