Practice Safety First 

Your safety is your top priority after an accident. Make sure that you and anyone else in your vehicle are not injured. If you are, contact 9-1-1 immediately, stay put, and wait for emergency help.

If you aren’t injured, try to get your car safely to the side of the road to help prevent further damage.  

Report the Accident 

In Indiana, it is required by law to report accidents to the authorities. You will also want to report the damage to your insurance company if you are filing an auto insurance claim

Make sure to exchange information with the owners of any other vehicles involved. Take down their names, contact information, and insurance information. It’s also a good idea to take down the make and model of their vehicle, as well as their license plate number.

After you file your claim, your insurance company will need you to recount the accident in order to record all the details. Most likely, an adjuster will be needed to assess the damage and see what repairs need to be made.
