Contact Emergency Services

When an accident occurs, the best thing to do is contact emergency services as soon as possible. They’ll be able to assess the situation to see if anybody is hurt while also dealing with the flow of traffic around the accident.

It’s generally a good idea to contact the police in the event of any accident that people could be injured in and you won’t be driving your car out of. In a T-bone accident, your doors are likely heavily damaged, so you won’t be able to drive your car and first responders will be able to help you deal with the situation.

Exchange Insurance Information

After a collision, it’s always a good idea to make sure you get the insurance information of the other driver. Speak to the other driver and ask them for their insurance card. You want to be sure to get their name, phone number, and policy number. Make sure to take pictures of their information for absolute accuracy.

Speaking of taking pictures, another thing to be sure to do after an accident is to always take plenty of pictures of the cars involved. Be sure to document the condition your car as well as the car of the other driver. The goal here is the create a full picture of what happened, so comprehensive documentation is important.

Make an Insurance Claim

At some point soon, you’ll want to make an insurance claim—the sooner, the better. Your insurance company will send someone over to assess the situation to find out what your insurance company can do for you.

This is typically where fault can come into play and it’s important to be aware of fault during the accident. When assessing who’s at fault, it’s important to take right of way into consideration as well as other factors, like if the other driver was texting or otherwise being negligent.

Overall, the most important thing to do in an accident is to remain collected and focused and do your part in ensuring everyone is safe. Provide clear documentation of the event and your insurance company will be able to help you the whole way.
