How to File a Claim

An auto accident can be an overwhelming & frightening experience. So, if you are involved in a 

traffic collision, try to remain calm, request Victor’s Auto Body to tow your vehicle and follow

drivers and passengers should remain in the cars with seat belts fastened for everyone's safety

phone number, insurance company, policy number, driver license number and license plate 

number for the driver and the owner of each vehicle. If the driver's name is different from the 

name of the insured, establish what the relationship is and take down the name and address for 

each individual. Also make a written description of each car, including year, make, model and 

color — and the exact location of the collision and how it happened. Finally, be polite but don't
