What to do in the event of accident

It never hurts to be well-prepped for worst case scenarios. 

No one expects to be involved in a car accident. But it can happen in the blink of an eye – whether its your fault or someone else’s.

Stop Your Vehicle
  • If you fail to stop, it’s considered as a crime in the UK.
  • Turn your engine off.
  • Switch on your Hazard lights.
Identify Any Injuries and Contact the Emergency Services
  • Try to move and look for any injuries or pains to yourself and your passengers.
  • If you or anybody else is injured, call the ambulance and police by dialing 999.
Exchange Details with Third Parties
  • Exchange your insurance details with the third party or any other parties involved.
  • Try to collect any witness details, take their name, address and phone numbers.
Take Photos and Video if possible
  • Take photos with your phone and make a video if possible.
Contact Locar
  • Contacts Locar’s accident team on 0330 202 0790, but only once it’s safe to do so.
