While we never anticipate an accident to occur, it’s always beneficial to be prepared in the unlikely event that one may happen. Simply knowing how to respond and what kind of Jeep® service you may need after a collision can help keep you, your passengers, and others safe on the road. That’s why we’re here to guide you through some steps to take if you’ve been in an accident.

Check for the Physical Safety of you and your Passengers

Physical safety is the top priority after a collision. Check for any pain or injuries on everyone who is at the site of the accident. If there is an emergency, immediately call an ambulance so that everyone can get the care that they need. No matter what, the physical condition of the people involved is much more important than the condition of any of the vehicles after an accident.

Exchange Information

If other drivers were involved in the collision, be sure to exchange any relevant information like phone numbers, insurance plans, and license plate numbers. All of this information can be useful if any of the drivers need to file a claim or get coverage. Noting the make and model of the cars involved may also help with this process.
