1. Make sure everyone is alright. If anyone is injured and in need of medical assistance, call 911 right away to inform them that you require emergency medical personnel. If no one has sustained damage, call the local police to report an accident.

2. Share insurance information and contact information with the other driver. Be sure to gather theirs as well.

3. Gather details about the accident. Write down your own account, ask the other driver and any other witnesses. Either write down their responses or ask for permission to record their account of what happened on a voice recorder app.

4. Call your insurance provider. The sooner you call them, the sooner they can assist you. Additionally, we at Performance Auto Body can help with this step if you need assistance.

5. Finally, get your car to a collision repair shop that you trust. Performance Auto Body can perform all necessary repairs, from small dents to major repairs.

Don’t delay when completing these steps. The sooner each step is taken care of, the better. Waiting to contact your insurance can lead to additional hang ups with the filing process, while waiting to bring your car into our collision repair shop can lead to worsening damages that require more time and money to fix.

An accident is stressful enough, so there is no reason to add additional stress to the recovery and repair process. Trust Performance Auto Body to get your truck back to normal and you back on the road for your next adventure. We are I-Car certified, licensed and insured, so we are an auto body and collision repair shop that you can trust.
