Auto & Motorcycle Insurance from Marleau Bros Limited in Cornwall
Each time you get in your car or truck, you will most likely put on your seatbelt. It’s not that you expect to get into an accident, but if one occurs, you’ll be glad to have that protection. Just like your seatbelt, you won’t need Marleau Bros’ automotive insurance each time you drive. But, if you are involved in an accident, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that our insurance brokerage can look after your medical and transportation costs. Since 1944, we’ve helped Cornwall motorists get the coverage they need at rates they can afford. Yes, we even insure watercraft vehicles!
Though you never plan to be in an accident, it’s always a good idea to be prepared. This includes keeping a writing utensil, paper, relevant medical information and insurance details in your vehicle at all times.
After An Automobile Accident
Following an accident, the first step is to calm yourself so you may assess potential hazards, including the movement of traffic and fuel leakage. Though each accident is different, we’ve listed a few helpful suggestions to help you in the event of an automotive accident:
- Examine yourself for injuries
- Turn on hazard lights
- Check condition of other drivers/passengers
- Only move injured drivers/passengers to avoid endangerment
- Do not claim or accuse fault
- Minor accidents – move car to a safe place
- Call the police
- Document vehicle damage (notes and photos)
- Document contact and insurance details of drivers involved
- Contact your insurance representative
- Only discuss the accident with insurance and police
Though not all-inclusive, we hope these steps give you a general idea of what to do in the event of an accident. Additionally, these steps should not serve to override your best judgement in such situations or the advice of police and medical workers.
