Steps You Need to Know if You Are in a Car Accident, Infographic
Posted on April 29, 2016
The First Thing to do is Remember to Report Any Vehicle Accident That You Have in Mississauga
If you are in a car accident in the Mississauga area, make sure that your vehicle occupants are safe, and if anyone is injured call 911. In case your vehicle is not driveable, have it towed using the free tow car, and if you can drive it just move it to a safe location.
Do Not Sign Any Document After an Accident Unless It’s from the Police
Unless the police give you something to sign, do not sign any that anyone gives you after your vehicle has been in an accident. The one form that you really do need to fill in is the collision data form, since both your insurance company and the police need it to file any claims. If more than $1000 in combined damages to vehicles have results from any accident that your car is in, Ontario law states that you must report it to the police or a Collision Reporting Centre within 24 hours. You can reach the police at 911, or at 1-888-310-1122 within the province of Ontario.
You have the right to choose where you want your vehicle to be repaired after an accident. Section 13 of the Ontario Auto Insurance Consumer Bill of Rights stipulates this, and Team Chrysler’s Collision Repair is always available to help you in any way we can.
