New Fender Bender Auto Accident Reporting Online Comes to Nashville

Involved in a fender bender? These car and auto accidents are often defined as "minor" since they occur at a low speed and generally sustain the most damage to a car’s fender, which may need to be replaced or repaired after the wreck. 

The best way to handle a fender bender accident is the same way you would handle any other type of car accident. If you are able, pull over immediately, set your emergency flashers, and check on the other people involved.

Stay Calm and File a Report

While this experience can be stressful and frustrating, it can be easily remedied. It’s important to remain calm and focused during such an accident and prioritize the safety of yourself and others.

If there are no injuries, you can move on to the next step which is filling out a minor vehicle crash report online. This can easily be done on your phone, mobile device or desktop computer. 

Keep in mind that you can only file one of these reports if the following is true:

  • The vehicles don’t require a tow truck.
  • The vehicles aren’t blocking a roadway.
  • The drivers involved weren’t under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 

Here are some things that you should be aware of before filling out your report:

  • No police action/follow-up will be taken as these reports are for documentation purposes only.
  • Complete the report at the scene and include the driver’s license, vehicle, and insurance information for all parties involved.
  • Exchange driver and insurance information.
  • Have clear photos of the vehicles, damages, driver licenses, and registrations to submit with your report.

After you file your report, you’ll be given a report number and instructions to obtain a copy of the report, which you should share with all parties involved in the auto accident
