Georgia is home to roughly seven million drivers and over eight million vehicles traveling on 128 million miles of public roads. With these numbers, it’s no surprise that car accidents happen every hour in Georgia. If you’re in a car accident, you need a team of people who are ready to help get you and your vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible. The Georgia Farm Bureau team is here for you year-round and around the clock.
Before Reporting Your Car Accident
Immediately after a car accident, it’s important to take safety steps to stay out of harm’s way. Consider the following steps to take after a car accident:
Ensure you and your passengers are safe.
Call 911 immediately. Only discuss accident details with the police and your insurer to avoid misconstrued statements.
Move vehicles off the roadway and away from further harm, if possible.
Exchange driver information (name, phone number, tag numbers, and insurance information).
Take photographs of the vehicles and accident scene to include with your claim.
Obtain reporting law enforcement information (case number and reporting agency).
After you have completed these steps, report the car accident to your Georgia Farm Bureau Claims Representative as quickly as possible. During the claims process, your adjuster will gather the facts about your accident, explain your policy coverages,
limits, and deductible.
