Although we hope you never get into an accident, accidents happen. This step-by-step guide can help make this unlikely event an easier one. To be prepared in case of an accident, we recommend that you print out our convenient Accident Information Form and Reference Cards and keep them in your glove box.

In the event of an accident…follow these 3 simple steps.
1. Stop and Exchange Information.
2. Make a Record of the Accident for Yourself.
3. Choose the Right Body Shop to repair your Honda.

1. Stop and Exchange Information
Stop immediately and check yourself for injuries. If there are injured parties, notify the police immediately.
Exchange information with the other driver by showing your driver's license, proof of insurance and license plate number. To save time, you can fill out and print the handy Reference Cards in advance. Keep these cards in your glovebox with your registration and proof of insurance.
Inspect the damage to both vehicles without ever admitting guilt or debating whose fault it was.
When the proper authorities arrive, have your driver's license, registration and proof of insurance ready. It is imperative that specific details of the accident are properly recorded for an accurate account of the accident.

2. Make a Record of the Accident for Yourself.
The printable Accident Information Form will assist you in obtaining important information regarding your accident, including the other driver's information, vehicle license number and a detailed description of all vehicles involved. This information will be critical when reporting the accident to the police and your insurance company.

Fill out the Accident Information Form in careful detail, as the information recorded may be necessary at a later date.

3. Choose the Right Body Shop to repair your Honda.
As the owner of a motor vehicle damaged in an accident, you have the right to choose the shop where you wish to have your vehicle repaired. It's the law. You may wish to contact the service advisor at your Honda dealer to recommend a body shop. In any case, here here are some things to consider when choosing the right body shop for collision repair:

Reliable and professional reputation
Certified technician's training
Lifetime warranty on paint
Free estimates
State-of-the-art equipment
Top quality replacement parts like Honda Genuine Collision Parts
