It can happen to anyone; you hit a pole with your car, or damage occurs due to collision with another vehicle. The cause does not matter. you want to know what to do after a collision with your car. In doing so, it depends on whether it is a single-sided damage or a two-sided damage. A single-sided damage is when there is no other party involved, but when you hit a pole or tree. A two-sided damage is when there does have a collision with another road user. When there is an opposing party, this is where the question of fault comes into play.

The important thing is to act immediately after the collision. Of course, you should first get yourself to safety and call any emergency services if necessary. When necessary, you can call the emergency center number listed on the green card.

Then you have to fill out the claim form. In a single-sided damage, the question of fault does not play a role. When there is a two-sided damage with another vehicle, you both fill out the claim form. See if you can find witnesses to give a statement. Also, take as many photos of the collision as possible. Then contact your car insurance company to discuss what the next steps are. Make sure you have your green card handy. Also see if it is wise to continue driving. If your car needs to be towed, contact the emergency center. If your car is seriously damaged and it cannot be repaired on the spot, the roadside assistance will drive it to a storage place. Often this is a garage. Check first with the insurer whether you are covered for this.
