It is critical that you report all accidents to the police, regardless of fault or circumstances. Make sure to get the other party’s driver license number and the insurance information including: name, telephone number, policy number, vehicle information (year, make and model), and effective and expiration date of policy. Record the officer’s name, police department and police report number as well as any witnesses and/or injured persons contact information. Please include all other pertinent information that could be helpful in the handling of your claim, and any claim being made against you.
The foregoing is only for general information purposes. You should refer to your policy language for a detailed description of your duties after an accident.
