General advice on making a claim if you’re in an accident

If you’re in an accident you should:

  • Never admit at the scene that it was your fault
  • Take photos at the scene of the vehicles before they are moved, if possible
  • Exchange names and other details with the other driver and get details of any independent witnesses. If a driver refuses to give you their details, your insurer may be able to trace them through their vehicle registration number
  • Tell your insurer immediately about the accident, even if you don’t want to make a claim
  • If someone is injured, you should show your insurance certificate or cover note to the Police within seven days of the incident
