April is officially stress awareness month. Experts nationwide are working towards raising awareness for stress, the causes and cures that we deal to tackle the symptoms many suffer on a daily basis.
To support the cause The Bodyshop, Ilford, have thought what better time to talk about the stresses that car accidents can cause and how we can help to relieve this as much as possible.
Here are some of our tips to help your stress levels should you get into car trouble in the future.
When an accident occurs it’s extremely important to stay as calm as possible. This can be difficult due to shock and possible panic caused. It’s always worth taking a few minutes to gather your thoughts and take a few deep breaths before taking the next step.
You will need to find out if anyone else is involved and contact the emergency services straight away.
To help, follow the STAY CALM steps to ensure that you stay on the right track while dealing with the effects of the accident.
Seek medical attention if there are any injuries
Try to move to a safer location
Alert the police
Your camera on your phone can be used for any photographic evidence
Compile a list of all contact information from others that are involved
Avoid admitting liability where possible
Losses and damages will all need to be noted
Make sure you then contact your insurance provider and experienced bodyshop
You are obliged to exchange your name, registration number of the cars and potentially I so make sure all of this has been noted.
Once this has all been sorted you will need to arrange your car accident repair.
