How to Get Through a Car Accident - Not My Fault

Car accidents, or even just the thought of a potential car accident, can frighten or cause worry about possible injury - we all have those moments of fear. This fear can help you make the best decisions about how to handle your own injuries if they happen as a result of a car accident. And this preplanning can help you to be sure that you will be taken care of if something happens. If you haven’t already put together a plan of what you would do in a car accident, then this one's for you!

Some questions to ask yourself - and to keep in mind should the worst ever occur.

Who will be driving your car? Who will be driving the other car? Will there be witnesses to the accident?

Of course, if you believe that you are not at fault for the accident, you will want to see records of the other driver's behaviour - be sure to reach out to witnesses around the accident scene. Even better - install a dashcam before any accidents happen! If you are not at fault, then call our team at Carbiz as soon as possible.

How are you feeling physically, emotionally, and socially? 

For many people who are involved in a car accident, the event can cause mental trauma, as well as physical trauma. If you are injured, it may be difficult to find any kind of routine physical activity, let alone a social life.

How are you planning to pick up the children if you are involved in an accident, or even run errands? 

Let’s be honest - cars get damaged in accidents. Even minor accidents can leave your car in the repair shop for weeks. And many of us are so dependent on our cars to get to work, pick up our kids or just to run simple errands like picking up a few groceries. An accident replacement vehicle may be your only option for getting back to normal life. 

Do you have a way to get home after your accident? If you are unable to move your vehicle after the accident, you may need a tow truck to get you to a repair shop. Did you know that Carbiz can help you with this as well?
