Being in a car wreck, no matter how big or small, can be extremely stressful. However, that stress can intensify if you aren't sure of how to react to the situation. For that reason, this post will share a few post on the matter.

How to React Accordingly to a Small Car Wreck

Ensure No One is Injured

First things first: make sure that no one was injured during the car crash, no matter how small is was. Ask your passengers if they're ok, if they were hit, etc. You may also want to head to the other vehicle to verify that no one was physically affected by the turn of events.

Do Your Best to Remain Calm

Being in a fender bender can ruin your day, even if wasn't that serious. However, don't give in to rage. Doing so will only make the situation much more uncomfortable and irritating. Instead, focus on calmly going through the next steps, so you can get this over with as soon as possible.

Contact the Police/Your Insurance

The next thing you should do is contact the authorities. Keep in mind that this will depend on where you are (in some places, for example, the law requires you to call the police and file a report on the incident). You may also need to contact your insurance company to deal with this problem.

Exchange the Necessary Information

Following the previous step, you will need to talk to the other driver and exchange certain information so you can stay in contact for the procedures. For instance, you should give them your full name, phone number, the vehicle's plates, their home address, etc. Be sure to take note of their information and to verify its validity.

Make Records of the Occurrence

You may want to document the whole situation to have records for when the police or insurance company arrives. To that end, take pictures of the accident, collect testimonials from witnesses, and write notes of how things went down. This will hopefully shed light on the situation and will help resolve it faster.

Move Out of the Way

A fender bender can have the annoying consequence of creating a traffic jam. If your vehicle is functional, if the law permits it, and if you've already gathered all of the evidence, move out of the way. Park your vehicle on the side of the road or go to a less busy street, so you don't impede vehicular circulation. If you don't want a mechanical malfunction to be the cause of a fender bender, maintain your vehicle in top shape. Be sure to provide its engine with regular synthetic oil changes with AMSOIL 100% synthetic oil. Call John O Brown at (520) 444-2634 for more information.

Notify Your Close Friends/Family

While you're waiting for the situation to sort itself out completely, use that time to call your spouse, family members, or close friends, and inform them of the accident. Let them know you're ok and what the process will be. If you were on the way to meet someone, you should also let them know you won't be able to make it.

Take Your Vehicle to the Mechanic

One step you shouldn't oversee is taking your vehicle to a mechanic after a car wreck. How this is done will depend on the magnitud of the accident, your insurance coverage, the agreement you reached with the other driver, etc. A professional mechanic will make your vehicle good as new in no time.

Visit a Doctor

Getting a quick check-up with your doctor after a car accident can give you peace of mind that you weren't injured during the fact. Even if you don't feel pain at the time, small internal injuries can take a toll on you as time goes on. A doctor will be able to assess your condition and tell you if you're good to go.

Something to Keep in Mind

While this doesn't have to do with the process you should follow after a fender bender per se, it's still important that you keep it in mind. Always have an updated driver's licence, insurance policy, and vehicular registration in your car. You should also have certain contact information handy in case something like this happens to you.
