If you're involved in an accident
- Don't admit fault. Notify us immediately.
- Make sure you and any passengers are safe. Check if anyone is hurt and call 999 if necessary.
- Get the registration and insurance company name and policy number of all the other vehicles. This should be on the insurance disc on the windscreen.
- Make a note of all injuries and damage, draw a sketch map of the scene and take photos if you can.
- Exchange names and addresses with the other drivers, passengers and witnesses.
- Take any reasonable emergency steps to avoid further loss, like moving the vehicles safely off the road, once you've recorded the details of the scene.
- Notify An Garda Siochana immediately (and no more than 24 hours later) if any person or animal is injured or if your car is stolen or damaged on purpose.
- Send us any correspondence or notice of prosecutions you get unanswered.
- Only go ahead with permanent repairs or get rid of any parts with our agreement. If you don't, your claim may not be covered.
