So you've got into a minor car accident, and you're in a state of shock. Snap out of it! If you want compensation, the next 24-hours are going to be busy.

While the chances of getting into an accident are slim, it's always good to know what can cause a car accident and how to avoid getting into one.
However, if you've had a bout of bad luck and got involved in a minor car accident in Singapore, don't panic. Here's what you do.
Step 1: Assess the situation
You should lodge a police report within 24-hours in these cases:
- There is an injured/unconscious party
- It's a hit-and-run accident
- Accidents with government vehicles or property (car plates QX and MID)
- Collision with vehicle(s) not registered in Singapore
Step 2: Ensure safety
If the car accident causes a traffic obstruction, snap a quick picture of the scene before moving your vehicles to the roadside. Place the hazard sign (that orange triangle usually located in the boot of your car), at least 50m away from the rear of your car.
