How we beat the bully and top tips on what to do if you have a car crash!

Nearly a year ago today we were involved in a (luckily) minor road accident which was no fault of our own, as proven in court on 05/09/2017! The third party driver placed the blame on us and now the truth is out its safe to say both myself and my partner feel like a giant weight has been lifted!

Although we knew the third party was guilty and that the collision was no accident we still thought we would be held responsible due our age and limited driving experience. A huge thanks to our witness and Deakon as we managed to prove the third party driver was in the wrong simply by being honest.

Car-Crashing-Into-Each-OtherIt’s a situation I would very much like to avoid going forward but I thought I’d share a few top tips for how to handle a crash! I work in Carfleet and we provide drivers with a ‘bump’ card to note all important details. I’ve created a simplified version for you to print and keep in the car just in case!

Top tips!
  • As hard as it is, try to remain calm. It’s safe to say I was extremely shaken and angered by the third parties actions and didn’t stay as calm as I could have. Raised voices really don’t get you anywhere!
  • Photograph everything! Both vehicles, the place the accident happened or the scene depending on how it unfolds. If possible (with permission) Β get a photograph of the driver – A few friends of mine have had issues where the person who turned up to fight the claim was not the driver of the vehicle at the time of the crash!
  • Report it to your insurance immediately.
  • Make note of the date, time, street, traffic conditions and weather.
  • Print and keep a copy of the above bump card in your car!

It really is important to stay alert and follow the rules of the road. Always be aware of drivers around you and don’t forget not all accidents are quite as simple as they seem. scammers are out there and if you believe the incident was no accident stand your ground, stay honest and don’t let them get away with it!
