Even after escaping with minor injuries, it can take months to recover from accident-related trauma. Below are various actions to take post-accident, including solutions offered by Brown’s Collision Center. The right steps after an accident can even restore your car to its previous condition.
1. Assess the damage
After an accident has occurred, the first step involved is to make sure everyone is okay, and no one has suffered significant injuries. In case there is a passenger in need of immediate medical attention, call 911 for help and save a life. Even if there were no injuries, you must file a report with the authorities.
2. Collect Information
Brown’s Collision Center has a group of experts always ready to help with damage assessment. After an accident, contact this company to respond to your case immediately. Before starting a repair, the technicians use damage assessment equipment that helps in collecting necessary details about your car.
Damage assessment provides a clear picture of what is left inside and outside of your vehicle. It’s helpful to take photos of the accident area and your car to help in the case filing process with legal authorities. Also, exchange information with the involved third party.
3. Contact Your Insurance Company
Brown’s Collision Center works handily with insurance companies in accurately assessing vehicular damage and setting expenses to be covered by varying insurance companies. Post-accident, notify your insurance company concerning the accident and file a report for compensation.

Scratches damage vehicular paints; often, the only solution is repainting. When marks are on handles, they expose your car to rust, which can lead to future expenses. Brown’s Collision Center provides ASA certified professionals to handle all these issues effectively.
5. Car part replacements
After a damage assessment, the repair company might need to replace damaged parts. Typically, the most affected area is the front.

You have a much higher likelihood of remaining safe from another accident. The repair team uses high-quality front bumper materials that can withstand even the hardest hits.
If accidents involve your car being hit from behind, there will likely be fender damage. Just like with bumpers, damaged fenders need to be repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage. Most headlights and Taillights are also prone to damage in an auto collision. Brown’s Collision Center can install vehicular lighting to help you continue safely navigating traffic.

After an accident happens, ensure all involved parties are doing well, and none have suffered significant injuries. Exchange legal documents with the affected parties then file a report with the legal authorities. After assessing the damage, contact your insurance company for compensation and to determine expenses that will be incurred during the repair. These are just a few post-accident actions from the professionals at Brown’s Collision Center.
