If you are in an accident, there may be heightened emotions and there may be injuries. There are important things you should do at the scene of an accident. Review our accident checklist below.
1. STOP at once to investigate.
Try to avoid further damage and/or injury. Help anyone who is injured and avoid movement of the seriously injured.
2. Protect the scene of the accident.
Activate your emergency flashers and place flags, flares or reflectors. Move vehicles to a safe area until police arrive.
5. Do not state that you are at fault.
Do not discuss the facts of the accident with the other party or anyone other than the police. When discussing the facts with the police, again do not state who is at fault.
6. Get witness information.
Get the names, addresses and phone numbers of all witnesses to the accident. Use the cards in this envelope.
3. Call 911, if necessary.
Give them the facts of the accidents and obtain from them any forms which must be completed.
4. Exchange information.
Exchange driver’s license number, license plate number, insurance provider, insurance policy number
7. Call for assistance
To have your vehicle towed or to call and schedule an appointment, call Big Sky Collision Center (406) 259-6328.
7. Notify your insurance company.
And remember, you get to choose which auto body shop to use!

I recently moved to Bozeman and had no idea of a good body shop around town. I needed to get a couple rusted/broken screws removed from my rear license plate. A & D were able to get me in the morning that I called them. They have a very friendly and knowledgable staff, quick turn […]

Best auto body place I’ve ever been to!! Incredibly nice people. I hit a deer and the estimates I got from other places were at least twice as much as A and D said they could do it for. They got me in within the week and completely fixed and cleaned my car in one […]

Absolutely Amazing all around service and excellent repair work. Communication between mechanics couldn’t be any easier or friendly. Front desk help is also equally amazing. They can be booked out a bit but it’s truly worth the wait to get the kind of service provided.
