What to do after an accident


Assess the situation

  • Make sure everyone is okay and unhurt.  If someone is hurt, call 000.
  • Call the police if someone is hurt, if your car has been stolen or vandalised or if someone involved in the accident has left the scene.
  • If you can, move your car to a safe place.

Collect details and take pictures

  • Collect the contact details of the drivers, passengers or witnesses to the accident.  Do not admit fault.  Collect their full name, address, phone number, car registration and insurance details.  We cannot waive your excess without the details of the other driver.
  • If it is safe, take photos of the scene of the accident.  Collect any available dash camera footage, CCTV footage, or note any nearby CCTV cameras.
  • Note the time and get the police reference number, if they attend.
