What do I do after an auto accident?

Make sure you and your passengers are safe. Move as far off the roadway as possible, but stay at the scene of the accident. Warn oncoming traffic by activating your hazard warning lights or setting flares.

Stay calm and call the police to report the accident and emergency personnel if anyone is injured.

Contact your insurance company. At Clark-Mortenson we have live, 24/7 claims service.

Do not admit fault for the car accident or discuss the car accident with anyone other than the police and your claims representative.

Exchange vital information with the other driver involved in the car accident. Write down the name, address, phone number and license numbers for all drivers and witnesses, particularly those who were not riding in a vehicle involved in the accident. Ask for the insurance companies and policy numbers for drivers involved in the car accident.
