Do I have to call the police if I’m involved in a car accident?
Yes, if you are involved in a car accident, you do have to call the police. First, you need a record of the accident, a traffic accident report. Having a record of the accident is helpful for a successful settlement or court case. Traffic accident reports are used to determine compensation and other benefits you may be eligible for. Calling 911 will also guarantee that you receive all the medical attention you need. Even if the accident was minor and you had minimal injuries, creating a paper trail of your injuries is important.
