Frequently Asked Questions

Been in an Accident? Follow These Steps.

1. First and foremost, check if anyone is injured. If there are injuries, call 911 immediately. If at all possible, carefully move the vehicles off the road. Remember that it’s important to avoid saying who’s at fault.


2. After ensuring the cars and passengers are all safely off the road, start writing down these details for any vehicles involved (which may need to be given to the police later):

  Driver’s name and contact info
  Driver’s licence number
  Vehicle’s licence plate
  Vehicle’s make and model
  Insurance detail for any vehicle from outside British Columbia


3. It’s important to talk to the witnesses and write down their names and contact information for both the insurance agency and the police.


4. Besides vehicle and driver information, it’s important to write down any helpful details about the accident, including:

  Weather conditions
  Direction both vehicles were travelling
  Where both vehicles were in the road


If you have a camera on hand, it’s also helpful to take photos of the damage and the crash site. If you don’t have a camera, even drawing a diagram is helpful.
