WHAT TO DO IN A MINOR CAR ACCIDENT?
No matter how minor the car accident, you should always obtain the other drivers license, and insurance information. In addition you should note the make and model of car the other driver was driving, as well as the location of the damage to both vehicles, and make a diagram of where the accident occurred. You must report accidents to your insurance company in accordance with the terms and conditions of most insurance policies. Failure to report a claim may constitute a basis to deny the claim. Even if you don’t wish to pursue damage to your car, you should report the claim as informational. Often injuries in a minor car accident are not immediately apparent. You may find that you are experiencing pain or discomfort the next day after an accident that you did not notice at the time of the crash. If you experience pain following an accident you should see a physician and determine if you are injured.
