Why You Should Call the Police After a Car Accident

Generally speaking it is best to air on the side of caution and call the police after your car accident. If your accident has:

  • Significant damage to either vehicle
  • Bodily injury
  • A dispute about who is at fault

You should absolutely call the police.

The important thing to keep in mind with regard to your car accident is that the police can collect vital information surrounding the crash. Police officers responding to the scene of the accident will make a publically available record of the crash’s details. Should you need to file a legal claim of any kind, this report will be an invaluable resource for your attorney to draw on. Especially if you have to file an insurance claim.
