What to tell the police after an accident
After any accident, it is important to get the police to come to the scene so that they can make an accurate report of what has happened. This will be useful for your insurance and compensation purposes, as well as ensuring that you are square with the law after any accident.
You should obviously answer any questions the police have, but if you want an accurate police report to be made up (bearing in mind that this will help you to file both insurance and compensation claims later) then there is some more specific information you should be giving. Here are some of the things you should try to remember, to supply to the police when they arrive.
- Your personal details. Most importantly, the police will need to know your personal details so that they can contact you, later on, to talk more about what happened. This will make it far easier to get the situation resolved, and should help them to put an accurate police report together.
- What happened. You should give your side of the story in as much detail as you can. If you get the police to the scene right away, then the accident should still be fresh in your mind and you will be able to give more accurate details, which will help them to get a good idea of what happened.
- The truth. Even if you feel that the accident was your fault for some reason, you must be honest and give the whole truth about the accident as you saw it. If you lie and there were CCTV or witness statements which go against what you have said, you may have broken the law by lying, and the punishment will be more severe.
- What the other driver was doing. Although you should never approach the other driver with accusations, it is fine to tell the police what happened as you saw it.
