That’s where your phone comes in, use the notes app or even create a new contact for your insurer, include the claim department telephone number and your policy number.
- If you have a crash with another car, use your phone to take down the other persons insurance details and take a pictures of the damage to yours and the other vehicle.Ai??Also take a picture of the view of the road from where you had the accident.
- If there is anybody else around who saw the accident but was not a passenger or a friend relative of anyone involved as for their details too as they can be used as witness.
- Dont worry about whose fault it was in reality its not your decision, your insurer will take care of that.
