So you have been the unfortunate victim of someone who has smashed a window or the windshield of your car? While it will be a shock here are a few things you can do to get back on the road.
Document The Damage
Before calling the police document the scene by taking photos and list anything that is missing.
Report To The Police
Make sure you do not move your vehicle so an officer, upon their arrival, can see the scene for itself. The police will ask for your vehicle registration, insurance card and drivers license as they make their report. Obtain a copy of their report before they leave the scene.
If credit cards are missing you will want to cancel them and should let your bank know. Also let your cell phone company know if your phone has been stolen. It may also be a good idea to contact the three big credit bureaus so they place a ninety day fraud alert.
Replace The Window
Finally, reach out to a certified auto glass shop approved by your insurance to get the window replaced.
