Statically each year, there are more than 5 million vehicular accidents around the U.S and about 27 thousand car accidents just in Colorado, according to Colorado’s State Patrol statistics. Therefore, it is essential to be prepared and know what to expect after being involved in a car accident.

Learn how to react after a low-speed accident.

No matter how serious or slight your car accident was, being involved in a traffic accident is already stressful. After a collision, you need to determine who is at fault, check for visible and expensive damages, and try to work something out with the other driver involved or call the police.

First of all, stay calm, take a few deep breaths and check that no one is hurt and requires medical assistance. It is important to approach the issue methodically. So, your next step is to determine all damages, exchange information with the other driver involved and contact the authorities. Some drivers might encourage you not to file a report, but not doing so could backstab you later. In fact, many States require you to report accidents even when it comes to a fender bender or small car dent. If you fail to report an accident or file a claim, you may face legal penalties.

Reporting an accident protects you. It verifies with your insurance company that you noted scratches, dents or damages when they occurred. Prompt reporting also demonstrates that you’re prepared in case any further damages appear.

Once you have all the paperwork ready and have collected enough evidence, all that’s left is running to your PDR shop specialist to get your car fixed. The beauty of paintless dent removal is that it is the most affordable, fastest, and effective way to get rid of dents and scratches. Most of all, PDR doesn’t leave a record on your CARFAX sheet. Therefore, it is the insurance companies’ and car retailers’ favorite dent removal procedure. Contact Auto Rehab today and learn more about car dents and insurance claims.
