You’re driving in bumper-to-bumper, stop-and-go traffic during rush hour on a Tuesday evening. Just as you glimpse your long-awaited exit, the car in front of you slams on the brakes. You stop just in time — but then the car behind you slams into your back bumper. Oh no! You’ve been in an accident!

1. Check for injuries – Check to see if there are any injuries. If anyone requires emergency assistance, call 911

2. Exchange Info – Exchange insurance information as well as names, addresses and vehicle information

3. File a Report – Try to retain a copy of the report number.
