A patch of ice or low visibility due to a snow and ice storm is a drivers nightmare. In most cases accidents result in minor scratches and dents in your car. No one wants to be in this situation. But if you do find yourself in an accident, there are a few steps you can take to get through the experience with less stress. Cloots Auto Body in the Wilbraham area, recommends following these steps if you’re in an accident.

Steps for Recovering from a Car Accident

1. Protect Yourself at the Scene

After the physical danger of an auto accident ends, the financial danger begins. Everything you say to responders, witnesses and other drivers involved can turn up later in court; if you admit fault or give responders a reason to question your actions, you may end up footing everyone’s bill. Be careful what you say, and if you’re concerned, get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible.

2. Work With Your Insurance

After you’ve finished at the scene of the accident and made your way home, report the accident to your insurance company and file all the necessary paperwork. Have the damage to your car assessed and keep a record of the report. This step will help you recover damages from the accident.

3. Visit the Body Shop

The less time your car spends with its damaged parts exposed to ice and snow, the easier it will be to repair. Bring your car to the body shop for collision repair as soon as possible. Even if all you need is a minor dent repair, sooner is better.
