Accidents happen. A fender-bender on Rock Road during rush hour or a more serious accident on Kellogg can be a scary place to find yourself, especially if you were the one to cause the accident. If you find yourself in this position, stay calm. Don’t try to leave the site of the accident because that has serious legal repercussions; instead focus on remembering these rules.
Notify your insurance company immediately. You paid premiums for years so they could protect you. Make them hold up to their end of the deal.
If it was your fault be honest and admit it. Accept responsibility so that your insurance company does not try to cheat the person you injured. Treat the injured person the way you would want to be treated if the shoe was on the other foot. Don’t let your insurance company play games by trying to short change the injured person. This will only result in you getting sued and being drug into Court. Over 95% of all civil injury trials are due to an insurance company refusing to do what it promised its insured it would do after a collision.
It’s also important to remember that damages from a wreck are solely monetary. This means that unless you were breaking the law when the accident happened, such as driving drunk, you can’t go to jail.
