What to Do After Getting in a Minor Car Accident

What to Do After Getting in a Minor Car Accident

by | Mar 17, 2020 | Emergencies, Roadside Assistance, Towing

There is no doubt that getting into a car accident is a scary occurrence. In the moment, you will likely feel overwhelmed and not know what exactly to do. There are a few steps you should always take in the event of an accident, and we are going to guide you through them today. If you are in need of any towing services or roadside assistance anywhere around Arlington or Fort Worth, make sure to call Titan Towing. Unlike our competitors, we care about your well-being and getting you help, not taking your money.

Call for Police

The first thing to do in the event of an accident is contact the local police. Getting a police report on file can help you later on when filing an insurance claim. Even if you do not plan on pursuing legal action, it is good to get the situation documented, just in case. It is better to explain how and why an accident occurred when it is fresh in your mind than when time has already passed.

Get Medical Attention

Regardless of how you are feeling immediately after a car accident, it is always a good idea to be examined by a doctor. The adrenaline and fear of being in an accident will likely make you feel like nothing is wrong, but you never truly know what is happening inside of your body. Not all injuries are external, so let a medical professional make the call.

A big reason people decide to not seek medical attention following an accident is because they simply want the situation to be over with. Denying medical attention can have negative effects on the outcome of an insurance claim, so to be safe, visit a doctor after an accident.

Contact Roadside Assistance

Once you have spoken to police and are looked at by a doctor, it is time to deal with your vehicle. Until you are certain the car is still safe to drive, you probably should not try to drive it away from the scene. This is when you should call for roadside assistance and a towing service. Roadside assistance can examine your car and tell you if there is something wrong with it beyond cosmetic issues. Whether you want the car brought home or taken to a mechanic, they can also ensure this happens safely. Titan Towing’s 24/7 roadside assistance and towing services are always ready to be at your side when an accident occurs, no matter when or where.

The 7th Most Dangerous Job in America

During the early morning hours of January 4th, 2019, tow truck driver Keith Holt, 46, was struck and killed in a hit-and-run collision on the shoulder of I-20. He was assisting a woman with a stalled vehicle on the side of the highway, the standard procedure for tow truck drivers, when the white Nissan Altima swerved into the right lane shoulder. This workplace condition was common for Holt, and is a regular work environment for a tow truck operator; a job more dangerous than one might think.

Texas Move-Over Law: Keeping Tow Truck Operators Safe

For Titan Towing drivers, safety is the highest priority as they work in precarious situations to move vehicles out of traffic on busy Dallas-Fort Worth freeways. The tow truck operators depend on other drivers to follow laws that keep them, and other motorists, safe.

Titan Does More Than Towing

If an accident occurs on the roadway, most people know that a tow truck driver can help by moving a damaged vehicle off the road or to another location. However, full-service professionals like Titan Towing do much more.

How to Choose a Good Towing Company

There are lots of towing companies in the Dallas Fort Worth area. Some are full-service, like Titan Towing,while others only do tows. No matter what type of service you need, there are some important factors to consider when choosing a towing company.

Drowsy Drivers After Daylight Saving Time

There are certain times of year when tow truck drivers are busier and one of those times has to do with time itself. According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), forty percent more drivers are involved in automobile accidents during Daylight Saving Time which results in about 100,000 more accidents across the country. With many more drivers on the road, heavily populated areas such as Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth, can make the demand for a tow truck go up each spring and fall when Daylight Saving Time occurs.

Avoid the Need for a Tow During the Winter Months

Winter weather is just around the corner in DFW bringing the possibility of snow, ice, and increased calls to Titan Towing. During prior winters, we have seen how severe weather can create an unintended ice rink on the roadways of Fort Worth, Arlington, the Mid-Cities, and everywhere in-between. However, that does not mean you will be the one who may need a tow if you take some simple precautions.

One Hundred Years of Tow Truck History

There are lots of people in history that helped shaped the world we live in today. Many of them were inventors like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison who saw a need for improvement and created inventions to change a situation for the better. One such inventor, not as well known as Franklin and Edison, but just as important nonetheless was Ernest Holmes, Sr.
