Useful advices after the accident

In case we have an accident and there isn’t injury our first action should be to take pictures of the vehicles that took part and to sign their registration plates. We can also call the insurance accident advisor, when our insurance agency provides with such a service.


Next, we move, if possible, the vehicles that took part, to places safe ant that not intervene with traffic. We also move particles from the road that consist possible danger for ongoing vehicles.


In case the driver that has made the mistake recognises it, there is the possibility of the “friendly statement”. The two parts control for the existence of driving license and exchange the data of car and driving license, identity card and insurance contracts. They fill in the special part of the insurance papers for the “friendly statement” and the responsibility of the responsible driver and the place of the accident are noted. Then the insurance agencies are informed and take the responsibility for the rest (autopsy of the accident place and of the vehicles that took part, cost coverage of the repairs from the insurance agency of the responsible part).


In case there is disagreement over responsibility, then we call the police (100) and wait for a police vehicle to come and the police officers to take evidence of the accident’s conditions and to notify responsibility.


In that case, and especially the case that a part leaves the place of the accident we try to locate any possible witnesses, obtain their data for future contact and inform the police.


Heavy injury.


In case of heavy injury our first action should be to call for an ambulance (166). We should have in mind that our intervention on an injured person, when we do not have the relative knowledge, can become dangerous to the injured person’s health and cause legal sunction against us.

Thus, we should try to help heavily injured persons ONLY if we have the necessary knowledge, training and experience.


In the last case, we avoid to move the injured person, because movement could deteriorate it’s condition.


We turn off the engine key.


We try to put off fire with the special fire extinguishers that all vehicles should carry.


We control if the injured person breaths by putting our fingers down its nose and in front of its mouth.


In case we realise that it doesn’t breathe we move progressively and slowly the head in hypertension and lower the lower jaw in an attempt to free the air supply.


We try to block bleeding by asserting heavy pressure on the bleeding woond with a clean clothe.


In case the injury isn’t so heavy and the injured person maintains it’s senses we imobilize the part that is hurt and has sustained a possible fructure.


We await the arrival of the ambulance for the rest.
