What should I do if I’ve been in a car accident?
Being in a car accident can be scary and dangerous. If you’re involved in an accident, then you need to guarantee that everyone in your car, and any other people involved are safe. If you or anyone else has obvious injuries then you should immediately call an ambulance. If you don’t call an ambulance you need to ensure everyone visits a doctor or the hospital later to be checked over, as some injuries aren’t obvious straight away.
You’ll need to swap details with the other driver, including contact details, details of the car (model, registration number etc.) and insurance details. These things will be needed if you contact a helpline for a car accident in Preston at a later date to make a claim.
In most cases, the police should be notified of the accident, especially if there have been obvious injuries or if the cars are blocking the road.
