Useful Tips to Follow After a Collision

At Wilson 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. Don’t 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.

  • Don’t offer medical help to others if you haven't been trained for it.

  • Assess the extent to which your vehicle has been damaged. However, don’t 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.

  • Don’t say that you were at fault. Even if you believe you may have been partially responsible, don’t say it.

  • Gather information about the witnesses – names, addresses, and phone numbers, or even their licence plates.

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