How do I report a car accident?
The best way to report a car accident is to do so right away. Right at the scene of the accident, you should call the police. And you should make sure that they come and do an accident report. Accident reports are critical for a Kansas City car accident attorney. It is very important to make sure that there is an accident report created. It should include the names of everybody involved, address and contact information where it happened, and insurance company information for everyone involved.
Do not take the advice of the at-fault party. It can sometimes happen at the scene where they encourage you to not call the police and just give you their contact information. You should also report the claim to your own car insurance company. Even if it was not your fault, you want to notify somebody with your company. And in that way, they know that they should be contacting another insurance company for the at-fault party, or, at least that, something happened.
