Confirm everyone is safe. Get off the road if possible. Do not admit fault.

If you’re in a crash, write down the following information of the people involved:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Driver License number
  •  Phone number
  •  Email address
  •  Make, model and year of the car
  •  License plate number
  •  Insurance carrier
  •  Insurance policy number

Witness Information:

  •  Names
  •  Address
  •  Phone Number

Take these photos, if you can:

  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Damage to their vehicle
  • Accident location
  • People involved with the accident

Get information from the officer if one is on the scene:

  • Name
  • Badge or ID number
  • Phone number
  • Police report number

Ask the police officer for a copy of the police report. The officer’s opinion of the accident will be useful if the drivers have a dispute during claims processing. The police report will also have the officer’s information on it just in case the officer is needed to testify.

Important Note: The other driver or the police will not need your Social Security number; don’t give it to them.
