Overcoming an Auto Accident with Maine Car Insurance

Category: Blog

Winter in New England means many things – including the heightened chance of auto accidents. From snow, ice and the increase in holiday travel the likelihood of a car accident happening is rather high. Often the shock of being involved in an accident causes drivers to panic, preventing them from not getting enough information or missing some vital details that may impact their ability to make a claim on their insurance. By securing a comprehensive Maine car insurance policy, you may feel reassured knowing the costs can be covered for any damage.

However, making the mistake of not gathering all required information could slow down the claims process, making it all the more important to be aware of what to do in the aftermath of an accident.

  • Ensure anyone involved is not hurt. In the event there are any injuries, call 911for assistance and offer help immediately.
  • Wherever possible, move all vehicles involved, off the road, to a safer location to avoid endangering other drivers.
  • Gather details from the other party/parties, including the name of their insurance company, driver’s license, name and address, vehicle details and license plate.
  • Gather details and notes from any witnesses; make sure to file a complete report with the police.

To ensure your claim is handled in a timely manner, file as quickly as possible, making sure you pass on all the information you have gathered at the scene of the accident. By providing all the necessary information your Maine car insurance claim can be completed more efficiently.
