Useful Tips to Follow after a Collision

At Wilson's Collision & Alignment Center in Glace Bay, we aim to provide you with all the help you need if you've been in an accident. In the event of a collision, following these tips will prove helpful:

  • Turn the engine off and make sure your car is in a safe place.
  • Maintain patience, tact and courtesy. Do not lose your temper at any point.
  • Scrutinize the impact of the collision. If you have suffered an injury, get your condition examined by a professional.
  • Do not offer medical help to others if you haven't been trained for it.
  • Assess the extent to which your vehicle has been damaged. However, do not walk directly between the two vehicles to avoid being trapped in case of another collision.
  • Report the accident to the police by either dialing 911 or pressing 0 on your phone and asking for the police.
  • Do not say that you were at fault. Even if you believe you may have been partially responsible, do not say it.
  • Gather information about the witnesses – names, addresses and phone numbers, or even the number of their licence plate.
  • Exchange information with the other driver/drivers involved – names, addresses, licence numbers and insurance information.

Assistance with Insurance Claims

Having an accident can be very stressful. If you are unsure or require assistance contacting your insurance company we are here to help you. Under amendments to the Nova Scotia Insurance Act in 2013, while proceeding with your insurance claim, you are now required to proceed under your own insurance policy. Your damages will be paid for by your own insurance company. This will not affect your policy rates if you are not at fault for the accident. Your insurance company may suggest a particular repair shop, but it is your legal right to pick your own repair shop. Choose wisely. Pick a shop that has a good reputation, warranty and one that you feel comfortable with. Protect your investment! Call Wilson's Collision & Alignment Center for details.
