Have you been involved in a car accident?
Statistics show that one in three Canadians will be involved in a car accident at some point in their life time. In those unfortunate situations, many questions naturally arise as to how best to handle the auto collision. This site is here to help, providing important information for dealing with car accidents and collision-related events.
The menu to your left provides the location for the Collision Reporting Centre closest to you. Read on below, or click on the above menu for useful information regarding automobile accidents. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
After the Accident: What Should You Do?
The first and most important thing to do following an accident is to check if anyone is hurt. If that is the case, immediately call 911.
Next, check for damages on the vehicles involved in the collisions. If any vehicle has sustained damage of over $1000, the collision must be reported within 24 hours. This should be done at the collision reporting centre nearest to the site of the car accident.
Make sure you exchange information with any other parties involved in the collision.
- Driver’s Name and Contact Information
- Driver’s License Number
- License Plate Numbers of the Vehicles
- Names of Insurance Companies
- Insurance Policy Numbers
In addition, make sure to note the time of the accident, weather conditions and exact location.
Reporting the Car Accident
As soon as you can, drive to the nearest collision reporting centre (which you can find in the menu to your left) to report the accident. If the accident has rendered your car immobile, or you cannot drive for other reasons, call a tow truck.
When you arrive at the collision reporting centre, an officer will come out to inspect the car for the car accident report. If your car was towed, the tow truck driver will usually wait for you while the report is being completed. When it’s done, the tow truck driver will take you to a destination of your choosing.
In Toronto and certain other cities, the tow truck driver must drop off the accident vehicle at the police car pound.
If you are not at fault, or have insurance coverage you will be compensated for:
- Towing fees
- Car rental
- Storage at the towing pound
- Accident car inspection
- Accident car repair / body shop
- Reimbursement for your car if it is a write off
Some insurance companies also cover taxi fares home from the accident site. Speak to your insurance representative for more information regarding coverage specifics.
