Accidents can leave you and your passengers shaken up but it's important that you try to get yourself together so you can do the appropriate actions needed when one gets into a car accident with any vehicle, including your classic truck or vintage muscle car.
Check for Injuries
Your safety and the safety of your passengers should always be your priority. The number one rule you should remember is to avoid moving any passenger who is either unconscious or has a major injury unless necessary. Immediately call 911 for medical assistance.
Call the Police, Get Some Witnesses.
Reporting the accident to the authorities is important. Your classic car insurance provider may ask for a copy of the police report when you're filing for insurance claims.
Prepare your vintage car insurance information
Don't forget to exchange information with the other parties involved.
Only Discuss the Accident with the Police and Your Insurance Representative
Try to be as accurate as you can when reporting the incident to the police. Be objective in your report. Letting your insurance representative know exactly what happened will make processing claims easier.
