Accidents happen to the best of us, and it can be a stressful time whether you're on the driver's side or the passenger side. However, if you're not sure what to do in the event of an accident, this article will help guide you through some of your options.
What should you do if you have been in a car accident?
If you're in an accident, your first priority should be to get yourself and any passengers out of the car. You should also call emergency services immediately to tell them about the accident so that they can send the appropriate response. If you are not able to get yourself or anyone else out of the car, stay calm and wait for help to arrive.
What procedure should you follow in the event of a car accident?
If you're involved in a car accident, always try and exchange contact and insurance information with the other party. If you're not able to do so, make sure to take down their details and report the incident to the police. You should also check for any injuries and call emergency services if necessary.

4) Vehicle ownership papers
5) Copy of vehicle log book
Safety considerations following a car accident
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important to take care of yourself and any passengers. This is when you need to be extra careful, because the adrenaline created by the experience could cause you to overlook certain aspects of safety.
You should wait until emergency services arrive and help can be given to those in need. To avoid further aggravating your injuries and accidents, move into a safe position away from traffic or obstructions. If you need assistance, call for help with your mobile phone or ask someone nearby for assistance.
There are some things that you should do to make sure the accident is as safe as possible. The first thing to do is stop your car and call the emergency services. If you can't stop the car, pull over once it comes to a complete stop, get out and wait with your hands on top of your head until help arrives. Do not get back in your car because it could explode or catch fire.
