Ensuring clarity in the event of an accident

It is well known that Coverbox black box technology helps bring clarity in the event of an accident by using its data to reduce the possibility of a disputed claim, but what else can be done to minimise the disruption and uncertainty caused by a relatively minor road traffic accident (RTA).

It is vital that you always stop if you are involved in an incident, no matter how trivial it might seem. Under the Road Traffic Act is an offence to fail to stop at the scene of an accident, just as it is an offence to fail to report it to your insurer.

Once you have stopped, check to make sure that no person is injured – including the occupants of both your car and any other vehicles involved. If someone has been hurt, call the emergency services; police and ambulance.

Once this priority check has been carried out check for damage to all vehicles involved, as well as to other objects in the vicinity of the accident – for example, houses, road signs or bollards.

In the event that someone has been injured or a car or object has been damaged, exchange vehicle registration numbers and other identifying details with those involved. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, contact the police within 24 hours to ensure they receive these details.

If a person has sustained injury, you must display your certificate of insurance to the authorities - if you do not have the document with you, take it to the police within 24 hours.

Remember, failure to report an accident to your insurer within a reasonable timeframe can invalidate your cover, even if you do not wish to make a claim yourself.

Lastly, although the Coverbox black box records vital details relating to the circumstances of a road accident – for example facts related to location, speed, braking, cornering and acceleration – it is always a good idea to gather as much information as possible. This means; the time the RTA took place, location, weather and traffic conditions of the incident, as well as any other observations that might prove helpful to the claims process, such as witnesses.
