Firstly, it is paramount to check yourself over to see if you have been injured. If so, call the emergency services immediately for help, or ask someone else to do it on your behalf if you’re severely injured. If you are severely injured, try not to move as you risk further aggravating your injuries leading to more damage.
The second step is to check on your other passengers if any. If your injuries are not severe, you can move to check on them First aid measures can be taken, such as applying pressure to stop excessive bleeding until the emergency services arrive.
Once you have checked on yourself and your passengers, you should move to the hard shoulder or behind the nearest barrier for your own safety. The cars hazard lights should be turned on to alert any oncoming drivers of your stationary vehicle in the road. However, if your car is not horrendously damaged and can safely drive and move across carriageways, our Motorway Recovery professional team advise that you drive it to the hard shoulder.
Regardless of the severity of your accident, you should inform the authorities about the crash and give them the location of the incident. Our Motorway Recovery team advise that you alert your insurance company as soon as possible in regards to the accident. They may require a copy of any police reports when your claims are being filed.
If you have been in an accident, you should exchange information with the other parties involved after assessing the situation and any injuries. Our Motorway Recovery team advise that some of the most important information to capture during the exchange includes:
Their insurance provider and policy number
Driver’s licence information
Vehicles registration number, model, type and colour
The location of the accident
