Your insurance company is going to review the police report, your statements, and the statements of witnesses and the other party. After they review that they will make a determination of fault and decide to accept liability or not on your behalf. If you think that you were not at fault in the accident make sure that you file a claim against the other persons insurance.

You can get an accident report at the police station.

Yes, you will need to report your accident to the police. You should report all accidents to the police, so that you can file a claim with your insurance.

Call the police and get a police report. Call your insurance company and report it to them asap.

No, it is to late now to file a police report. Due to the fact that where the accident took place, there are not any marks or anything that will be visible from the accident scene to make a police report on.

The only way a police office can write a report of an accident he did not witness is to take statements from people that did witness the accident. He can also look at the accident and determine how it most likely occurred.

Call your local police department and tell them you want to make out an accident report. An officer will come to you and get your information. be honest, it's the best way.

If the police came out and made a report of it then it will be on your driving record. It will be a not-at-fault accident but it will still be on your driving record. If the police did not come out but your insurance knows about it then it will be on your CLUE report and be a not-at-fault accident.

It depends on the accident. Most states do not required it if no one was injured.

In all states an accident in which damage occurred (and even those in which there is no noticeable damage) are supposed to be reported to the police immediately and at the scene of the accident. If there is no police report it becomes next to impossible to collect compensation from the insurance company.

You do not need to report it to the police you need to report it to the DMV within 5 days.

You need to contact your local police department. Once you have a police report, you can file your insurance claim.

Go to the police station of the municipality where the accident ocurred and ask for a copy of it. You will probably have to pay a fee for a copy.

The Accident report should provide vivid description of the incident with timing, location along with a handwritten sketch,corroborating with the Police Report and Surveyor's Report.

If the accident was reported to the police at the time it occurred, I believe a report can be filed, although it should have been filed ASAP. Check with your insurance company and state regulations.

The very first thing you do is report it to the police. Whether the car is "totaled" or not (a decision typically made by insurance adjusters), a police report is required for any automobile accident.

Yes. Although a court would consider such a report as highly valuable in determining the nature of an accident, and while it may be very helpful to a court in determining fault, there is no legal requirement for a police report to be done in order for civil liability to be assessed from an accident.

Just get a copy of the accident report from your local police station. If there was a fatality, it will generally be indicated on the accident report.

Accident reports are usually filed with the police. They will interview the person and fill in the accident report using those details. A separate report is filed with the insurance company.
