What to do in the Event of a Car Accident

A car crash can be a distressing experience, and very disruptive to your day.

If you’re involved in an accident, Crash Management is here to help. We can assist with your car insurance claim, and have the expertise and resources to ensure the best outcome for you and your vehicle.

There are a number of obligations you should be aware of at the scene of an accident:

• You must stop and give assistance. If there is any difficulty or anyone is injured, immediately call 111 for Police or ambulance assistance
• Do not admit liability or attempt to settle a dispute
• Exchange details with other drivers including names, addresses, phone numbers, car registration number, insurance details, drivers licence details.
• Exchange contact details with any independent witnesses
• Obtain the Police Officer’s contact details if one attends, and a copy of the Police report if available
• As soon as possible, record the accident details including location, street names, and the circumstances. Sketch the road lay-out, direction of travel, placement of vehicles & impact point of collision

Contact Crash Management anytime from anywhere in New Zealand on our toll-free line 0800 2CRASH as soon as possible. We can arrange emergency assistance and towing, provide expert technical help and advice.

Crash Management also co-ordinates on-site digital imaging & repair estimates, pick-up & delivery, and late-model courtesy cars & vans.

    This is all good advice. My car accident wasn’t that bad and the car was still drivable but I had a hellova job trying to find a panelbeating shop that was interested in going out of their way to help. Fortunately my company use Crash Management for their fleet cars so I originally heard about their service that way, otherwise I’d still be waiting. Crash Management’s service is MUCH better than dealing with panelbeaters and insurance companies directly, they organise EVERYTHING. Service is fast and professional with a great result. Nice late-model courtesy car to, not a panelbeaters old banger. And it was all free. Great result thank you!

    I’d like to commend Crash Management. Our company fleet enjoys the excellent service provided when our cars are involved in collisions, and general panelbeating repairs too. Everything is organised professionally and efficiently. The free late-model courtesy cars are a bonus too, they’ve also provided a courtesy van when we’ve needed one. Very pleased we were referred by our insurance brokers. Thanks Crash Management.
