    How to Deal with Police After an Accident – Injury Lawyers in St Martins

    After any road accident you must make a police report. The police will be happy to come out to any accident, however minor you think it is, so it is preferable to make your report there and then, and call the police as soon as the accident occurs, whilst both drivers are still at the scene and the damage is obvious. This will help the police to make a full and accurate report of the events. Here are the steps to take when dealing with the police after an accident.

    Call the Police First

    Before you do anything else or speak to anyone else, you should call the police at the scene of your accident. Even if you think someone else may have called, you should make your call as well to be sure. You want the police to get to the scene as quickly as possible. When you are on the phone try to stay calm and give all of the information that the police need to get to the scene and speak to the right people.

    Make Notes While Waiting

    The police will take a little while to arrive, and while they are on the way you should be making notes detailing everything that happened to lead to the accident. Don’t leave any details out as later on it may be more difficult to remember what happened, and you need this information for your insurance company and for any compensation claim, as well as the police.

    Don’t Place or Accept Fault

    When talking to the police you should give truthful details about what happened in the accident, but don’t take the blame or place the blame on the other driver. All of this will go into the police report and it could get you into trouble later on, so simply be as honest as possible about what actually happened.
