Car Necessities for Car Accidents

Car accidents occur throughout Bloomington and McLean County. Use these tips to make your misadventure a little smoother:

  • Keep your phone charged. Have a phone charger in your car at all times. A charged phone can keep the communication lines open while you are putting together the pieces of the puzzle. Your phone can also be used to take photos of the scene, which will be extremely helpful when it comes to making your claim and filing reports.
  • Always have a pen and paper in the console so you have something to write with when exchanging information with other parties.
  • A first-aid kit is great to have on hand for any minor injuries.
  • Have your car manual accessible so that you can properly interpret any signals or alarms coming from your car.
  • A heavy-duty flashlight will help you see when you may not have the convenience of your headlights; keep one in the trunk or glove box. Your phone light can also serve as a back-up flashlight in your time of need.
