Please follow the steps below when an accident occurs:
- Stop your vehicle and get out
➔ Make sure your vehicle is no longer moving, shift into park, or set the hand brake if you drive a manual and turn off the engine.
➔ If it is possible, take a moment to catch your breath.
➔ Check to make sure it's safe to get out of your vehicle before opening the door. ➔ If you have triangles or similar road safety items, consider using them.
- Move vehicle to a safe area if you can
➔ If it's safe to do so and you aren't seriously injured, move your vehicle out of further harm's way, such as to the shoulder of the road.
➔ If moving your vehicle just isn't possible, flip on your hazards to warn other drivers that your vehicle isn't going anywhere any time soon.
- Check on others involved
➔ Check on all the other parties involved, including drivers, passengers, and pedestrians, to make sure no one is hurt.
➔ Call 911 if anyone may be injured. Even a seemingly minor symptom like dizziness should be checked out by a healthcare professional.
➔ Call Axiom immediately at (281) 419-7063 prior to transport to a medical facility if possible.
➔ Avoid confrontations with the other occupants.
- Call the police to the scene
➔ Even in minor accidents, a police accident report can prove invaluable when dealing with your car insurance company and other drivers.
➔ Cooperate fully, but avoid admitting fault or blaming others while at the scene. Let the police objectively judge events and determine who, if anyone, is at fault in the crash.
➔ If the police can't make it to the scene (which is more likely if there are no injuries), you can file an accident report through your state's DMV. ➔ Email: HSEReporting@rigup.com and firstname.lastname@example.org after calling the police if possible.
➔ Depending on the situation, you may be required to go to the nearest medical facility for a drug test. You will need to arrange for a ride to the testing site - do not drive yourself.
- Gather Info and Document the Scene
➔ Using your Incident Report Form (For Harvest & HCS, this is in Device Magic) write down as much info as possible including:
◆ Driver and passenger names
◆ License plate numbers
◆ Insurance information
◆ Makes and models of all vehicles involved
◆ Contact information for any eyewitnesses
◆ Location of the accident (road names, mile markers, cross streets, coordinates)
◆ The name and badge number of any responding police officers ➔ Photograph the following:
◆ Vehicles involved including damaged areas
◆ Site of incident
◆ Mile markers
◆ Street signs
◆ Any skids marks or impacts prior to the vehicle resting place
