When Disaster Strikes What to Do if Your Home or Business is Struck by a Car

As a locally owned and operated family business, LaPointe Construction Board-Up Service, we understand that accidents can happen anywhere, even to the places we hold dear. One such incident is when a vehicle collides with your home or business—a situation that can be incredibly distressing and overwhelming. In this article, I will guide you through the immediate steps to take if your property is struck by a car and explain how our team can assist you in the aftermath.

The first and most crucial step is to ensure everyone’s safety. If anyone is injured, call emergency services immediately. Even if there are no apparent injuries, it’s still important to contact the police to report the incident and document the event. The police report will serve as valuable documentation for insurance purposes and any legal proceedings that may arise.

After ensuring everyone’s safety and contacting the authorities, it’s essential to assess the damage to your property. If the collision has caused significant structural damage, it may be necessary to evacuate the premises for safety reasons until professionals can evaluate the stability of the building. In such cases, LaPointe Construction Board-Up Service is here to provide emergency board-up services, securing your property and protecting it from further damage.

Our team of experts specializes in handling post-accident situations, and we understand the urgency and sensitivity of these circumstances. We will arrive promptly at your location, assess the extent of the damage, and implement the necessary measures to secure your property. Whether it’s boarding up broken windows, reinforcing damaged walls, or stabilizing compromised structures, we have the expertise and equipment to ensure your property remains secure throughout the recovery process.

In addition to securing your property, it’s crucial to document the damage thoroughly. Take photographs and videos from various angles, capturing all visible destruction caused by the collision. These visual records will be invaluable when filing an insurance claim or seeking legal action if necessary. It’s also advisable to gather any available witness statements or contact information, as they can provide valuable support in the claims process.

Once you have documented the damage, it’s time to contact your insurance provider. Notify them of the incident and provide them with all the relevant information, including the police report, photographs, and any other documentation you have gathered. They will guide you through the claims process and advise you on the necessary steps to take.

Throughout the entire ordeal, remember that you’re not alone. LaPointe Construction Board-Up Service is here to support you every step of the way.
