I hit a deer! Now what?

If you've been in an accident involving a deer, take these steps to ensure your safety and that of the animal:

  1. Move your vehicle to a safe location. If possible, pull over to the side of the road, and turn on your hazard lights.
  2. If someone is injured, call the police immediately.
  3. Stay away from the animal! If it is injured, call your local animal control agency, wildlife rehabilitation facility, or police dispatch.
  4. Document the incident. If it is safe, take photos of the damage to your vehicle.
  5. If there is significant damage to your vehicle, it is wise to have it towed. 
  6. Contact Your Friends in the Insurance Business at (989) 835-6701.
