Nobody can be fully prepared for an accident, but when an accident occurs the sequence and content of the action steps is very important.
- Ensure the safety on scene of the event and make yourself visible. Switch on the warning light of the vehicle, put on a reflexion vest, remove the battery bat to avoid ignition hazard when needed.
- Make sure all the people involved in the accident are alright. If someone is hurt, then please let the Emergency Response Centre know via phone 112 and act upon their instructions.
- Call the Emergency Response Centre also when:
- The sufferer is unknown or is not present at the scene of the accident (e.g. when hitting a traffic sign or a parked car);
- It is impossible to reach an agreement about the accident;
- The accident was caused by hitting an animal or as a consequence of prevention.
- When informing the Emergency Response Centre is not needed, then form the traffic accident always in writing, marking all the contact information of the people involved (name, ID, phone, email), information of the vehicles and/or other property, information about the witnesses and insurers.
- Take photos of the scene of the accident if possible. Make sure you capture the damages of the vehicles and the location.
- If it is possible to continue driving the vehicle, then you may leave the scene after written documentation of the accident. If it is impossible to continue driving the vehicle or it is too dangerous to do so, then please call the necessary towing assistance for transportation via phone +372 6756 756.
After performing the necessary actions at the scene of the accident, please let Compensa Insurance know about the accident by calling us +372 756 756 or write us via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
