Even minor accidents can shake up the most experienced of drivers. After you have moved to a safe location and, if necessary, contacted emergency services, try to remain calm while gathering the following information. Having it will help settle your claim and protect you from potential insurance fraud. The more you can report at the First Notice of Loss, the better.
