Three things you can do to plan for auto accidents

No one ever wants to be involved in a car accident. However, with six million car accidents per year, you’ll probably find yourself in a car accident at some point in your life. It's always better to be prepared to handle an accident.

Read on to learn three things you can do to plan for a car accident.


  1. Keep An Emergency Kit Handy

Every vehicle should have a basic emergency kit in the glove compartment or trunk. These kits might include a pen and paper to document the accident, a disposable camera to take pictures, emergency flares to signal other drivers, and a first aid kit to start medical treatment until the ambulance arrives.

Never assume your cell phone will do the job. It could be damaged in the crash.

  1. Know Your Insurance Coverage

Review your insurance coverage every so often to make sure it provides adequate coverage for your current vehicles and drivers. Verify that your deductible is reasonable and check into the particulars of the policy.

For example, some policies do not cover the cost of a rental car while your vehicle is being fixed. Adding rental vehicle coverage may only be a few dollars each month. See if the policy will cover legal fees in case you are drawn into a lawsuit over an accident.

  1. Maintain Your Vehicle's Safety Systems

Keep your vehicle's safety systems in working order. You want them to respond as expected in case you are in an accident.

For example, you may have an occasional signal from the airbag system. Don't ignore it.

Have an automotive technician check to make sure the airbags are working properly. Other systems to check include your brake pads, anti-lock braking system, seat belts, and driver assistance technology.


These tips will help prepare you if you are ever in a car accident. If you are injured in the accident, it's important to seek advice from an experienced attorney before you make a statement to the insurance company.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
