Collex Collision Assists Drivers in Post-Accident Procedures

Collex Collision is a Michigan based auto body repair organization with over a dozen locations across the Eastern United States. Most clients come to Collex Collision because they have been involved in an accident. Collex Collision knows that car accidents can be very frightening and disorienting experiences. Nevertheless, Collex Collision reminds drivers that there are a few basic steps to keep in mind if ever involved in a collision.

The first order of business at the scene of a car accident, notes Collex Collision, is to make sure that all passengers are safe and sound. If the accident is in the flow of traffic, advises Collex Collision, move out of the way of traffic. By the same token, adds Collex Collision, if the scene of the accident is isolated away from traffic, do not move the automobiles from the position of impact until a police officer arrives on the scene to make a report. If anyone is injured, call 911 for medical assistance. Collex Collision reminds drivers that it’s essential to call the police, no matter what. The police will assess the scene of the wreck and write a report, explains Collex Collisions, which will be indispensable during the insurance claim process later.

Collex Collision suggests that it’s best to refrain from discussing the accident with other drivers involved. Only discuss the accident with the reporting police officer or an insurance representative. According to Collex Collision, this suggestion is for each driver’s own legal protection. Car accidents tend to get a lot of adrenaline flowing, notes the team at Collex Collision, and it can be challenging to stay calm. In such an excited state, Collex Collision says it is unwise to discuss the accident right away.

Collex Collisions says that many drivers in an accident, simply because of the emotional tension of the experience, tend to mistakenly admit fault even when they were not at fault. Collex Collision warns drivers not to admit guilt at the scene of an accident, even if it feels like the “right” thing to do. Check for injuries, wait for the police, fill out a report, and then call the insurance company. Leave the discussion of fault to the insurance companies, advises Collex Collision. It’s their specialty.
