Auto Accidents: Should I call the police?

Yes, you should call the police in every auto accident case.  Do not simply exchange insurance information and leave.  Call the police and other emergency personnel if necessary and wait for them to arrive on scene.

A police report is imperative for filing a claim for property damage to your vehicle, as well as if you or your passengers are injured in the wreck. Having documentation of an accident could be crucial if the at fault party tries to deny liability.
