WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE AN ACCIDENT
Immediately stop and safely pull your vehicle over to the side of the road. If your vehicle is badly damaged and unable to be moved – leave it where it is until you have assistance. Switch off the ignition, apply your brakes and turn your hazards lights on to warn other motorists.
If you are able, assist anyone who is injured. Call 000 in an emergency or telephone 131 444 if you require police assistance (traffic hazard, road blockage etc.)
Try not to discuss the details of the collision and who is responsible, but focus on exchanging contact information and vehicle details.
Do not drive an un-roadworthy vehicle away from the location of the accident. Call Roger Heinrich direct (mobile: 0404 062 732) and we can arrange for your vehicle to be safely towed to Heinrich Autobody premises.
If Police did not attend the scene, and you believe the accident damage to exceed $3000, it is recommended that you file a Police Report at your earliest opportunity – within 24 hours from the time of collision is best.
