What to do in a car accident when you’re at the roadside.
A large portion of car accidents on UK roads usually involve people who have never had a car accident in the past.
Knowing what to do in a car accident is common amongst a lot of people, especially if the accident was not your fault; this requires a very different process.
Check for injuries to yourself and any passengers in your car.
Consider calling the police and report the accident, even if it's minor.
Exchange details with the other driver(s) involved, including name,
contact information, and insurance details.
Collect evidence at the scene, such as photos of the vehicles, any damage
sustained, and the location of the accident.
Gather contact information for any witnesses to the accident.
The next dilemma…
Is my car suitable to drive after a car accident?
The occurrence of accidents can range in severity and can happen in various circumstances, making it challenging to predict or estimate the damage to a vehicle without conducting a thorough investigation.
However, knowing if a vehicle is safe to drive away after an accident is incredibly important before making a judgement call.
“My car doesn’t look too damaged but i’m not sure what has been affected”
”I really want to leave the roadside now, it’s not really safe to stay here and it’s been a really stressful ordeal”
”I have my family in the car, and I don’t want to endanger them further by driving an unroadworthy car”
”What are the legal implications of my car’s current situation If i get pulled over after driving away?”
”My car is definitely damaged beyond being drivable, but I need to get home”
Use the tabs below to see if your vehicle is roadworthy or unroadworthy:
Your side mirrors are intact and fit for purpose
Your headlights and brake lights are functioning properly
Your wheels are properly aligned and unaffected
There are no leaking fluids from the vehicle
Your bonnet / doors able to lock and open
When you’re stranded at the roadside, all you want to do is be away from there and home as quickly and safely as possible.
Feeling stranded and helpless
Maybe you’re now late to an appointment
Worried about cost implications
Feeling unsafe or vulnerable
