Always be prepared...
It can be hard to remember what to do after the initial shock and surprise of an accident. In the confusion of the moment, you may forget important things...
To help prepare you, we have created an ‘Accident Checklist’ –
outlining the key actions to take. Consider printing this document and keeping it in your car. That way, you'll have a handy reference of what to do if you're unfortunate enough to be involved in an incident.
Items to keep to hand
In the event of an accident, it will help if you have the following items to hand. Make sure to always have these either in your wallet or in your vehicle:
- Your insurance details
- A list of emergency contacts
- A medical card listing allergies to any medication, or special conditions
- Pens or pencils
- A note pad
- First-aid kit
- Jump leads
- Rags or paper towels
- Rubbish bags
- Mobile phone
- Disposable camera (if your mobile phone does not have one)
