Car Accident? What do I do first?

Posted August 12, 2013 by Matthew


Car accidents can be traumatic experiences, and it’s not always clear what should be done first. Call the police? Exchange insurance information? Go to the hospital to get checked out?

Determine Injuries or Damage

Determine if you have suffered any injuries. Your adrenaline may still be rushing at this point, so you may not notice back or neck pain right away. Be sure to schedule an appointment with your doctor for the same day to assess any injuries or pain.

Assess the damage of the automobiles involved. Take pictures!

File a Car Accident Report

Even in minor accidents, it’s important to take proper legal steps. File an accident report. Do not leave the scene until the police have filed a full report.

Exchange Information

Be sure to record the license plate number, description of vehicles, names, addresses, phone numbers and insurance information of everyone involved.

Call your Insurance Agent

If possible, call your insurance company at the scene. Sometimes the police are able to provide a more detailed report of the accident to your insurance company, which will help to expedite your claim.

Call American Auto Body

Find an auto body company that will offer you a free loaner car while your car is being repaired, offers competitive prices and has the experience and dedication necessary to repair your car in a timely manner.

Posted March 26, 2013 by Matthew

According to “Chevy is entering the diesel car markets this summer with the cleanest diesel passenger car General Motors has ever produced.” Clean diesels generate at least 90 percent less Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous – generation diesels.

Chevy Cruze Clean Diesel 2014
The 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel delivers “ combinations of segment-leading features and efficiency.” GM testing so far has demonstrated “estimated best-in-segment range and 42mpg on the highway”.

“Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel fills an important role in Chevrolet’s diverse four-cylinder lineup, and is primed to win over diesel devotees and compact car buyers with its performance, torque and fuel economy,” said Perry.

With the combination of German engineering and the driving preferences of North American Consumers the 2014 Cruze is likely to do well in the diesel market.
