Hi Gina. If you just had an accident, the first thing you should do is contact your insurance company and file a claim for the accident. They need to officially file this before the vehicle is inspected for damage and repairs can be made. The insurance company will likely have an adjuster come to your location to review the Pontiac and determine where to go from here.
