Have you ever been involved in a motor vehicle accident? No one wants it to happen to them but the reality is that it might happen to you. If it does, being prepared for what happens directly after the accident is important.

What to do if you have an accident:

  • Call the police is anyone is injured. If police are not needed, you will report the accident to your nearest Accident Reporting Centre (accsupport.com)
  • If you have your phone handy and it is safe to do so, you should take pictures of the scene
  • When it is safe, move your vehicle out of the way of traffic
  • Record the information of the other party involved
  • Call Roughley Insurance as soon as you can after the accident

We recommended never admitting fault to the accident. Our dedicated Claims Advocate will walk you through the claims process and will act on your behalf when dealing with the insurance companies.
