Has your vehicle been damaged in an accident? Take the following steps to get back on the road quickly.
Things to do in advance
Make sure there is a European Accident Statement form in your
vehicle. Get one from your KBC insurance agent or at your bank
Know how to fill in the form correctly? Watch our short film clip.
On the cover page of your European Accident Statement form, note down:
- your KBC insurance agent’s contact details.
- the name of the repairer you would like to repair your car following an accident. KBC Insurance works with a network of repairers.
Is only the bodywork damaged?
Fill in a European accident statement.
Is there any sense in taking photographs?
In a limited number of cases, a photo may help to determine the
actual circumstances of the accident. (e.g., poor visibility, road
works or temporary signage such as road signs).
All elements that confirm the contradictory nature of the photo may be important. So, please mainly note objective identification points (such as a visible street name, house number or the direction in which the cars were driving). If possible, take photos of the vehicles involved together with the road signs and the road markings.
Stop driving your vehicle and then contact the VAB
