ACCIDENTS

WHAT TO DO

When you are involved in a road accident, when must you inform your insurance company?
You should inform them as soon as possible.
If you were in an accident that you think wasn't your fault, what should you do?
You should stop straight away, and exchange your particulars with the other party.

If you've been in an accident, where no one has been injured, but the vehicles are obstructing the road, and possibly causing danger, what should you do?
Mark the positions of the vehicles, and then move them off of the road.

INJURY-FREE COLLISIONS

If you have been in a collision, where the only damage that occured was to property, what actions should you take?
It's not necessary to report the incident to the gardaí, once you report it to the owner of the property.
If there is a minor collision with only some minor damage caused to both cars, what should you do?
You should stop your vehicle, and exchange your particulars with the other driver.

COLLISIONS INVOLVING INJURIES

An ambulance and the gardaí should be called to the scene.
If you have been in an accident, where someone has been injured, what is the correct procedure?
Do not attempt to move the person, unless there is a risk of fire or of another vehicle hitting the individual.
If you arrived at the scene of an accident, where there is an individual bleeding profusely, what should you do?
You should make an attempt to stop the bleeding by applying a tight bandage and pressure to the area of the wound. (A clean cloth or article of clothing will suffice if there is no bandage available.)
If you have been in an accident where someone has been left unconscious, what should you do?
You should loosen any tight clothing near the neck, and keep the person warm with a blanket or coat.
If you arrive at the scene of an accident, where there is an injured individual, should you give them something to drink?

Turn on a hazard light, if available, and call for help.

You must give any details that are asked for.
If you are in a collision with another vehicle, where neither party has been injured, what should you do?
You should exchange all relevant information and personal details with one another.
If you have been involved in a collision with a visiting uninsured driver, and no injury has occured, who should you report the incident to?
It should be reported to the Motor Insurers Bureau of Ireland, and also to your own insurance company.

HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
