Amica Insurance shares auto accident checklist

LINCOLN, R.I., July 29, 2016 – summer is the time for travel and family vacations,

which means there are more drivers on the road. But an increase in summertime

driving also means there are more car accidents. That’s why Amica Insurance is

offering tips to help ensure safety if the unexpected happens.

 

 

The U.S. Department of Transportation says that summer – not winter – is the most

dangerous driving season. Should an accident occur, Amica is sharing the following

checklist:

 

 

Make sure everyone is safe. If anyone is hurt, call 911 for help, and don’t try to

move them.

If possible, move the car to a safe location to avoid blocking traffic. Also, turn

on the hazard lights.

Call the police. If they write a police report, remember to get the incident number.

Stay calm and courteous, but be cautious.

Gather contact information from any witnesses. Take photos of the scene and any

vehicles or objects involved.

File a claim with your insurance company immediately.
