You have 10 days to file a police report
You need to contact your local police department. Once you have a police report, you can file your insurance claim.
24 hours I think
as long as it takes for you to write your statement
You can file a report without living in the State. Call the police station and tell them you need to file a report.
You have 10 days to report accidents over $1,000 in Texas if a police official doesnt' show up on the scene. The sooner the better.
As long as it may take to conduct an investigation and determine a suspect.
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.
Some sites say 14 days while others say 4 days so one should probably file within 48 hours just to be on the safe side report can be downloaded online.
Typically you have 30 days to file.
Individual citizens do not, and can not, "file charges!"The most one can do is MAKE A REPORT of the offense to the police and the police will take it from there.If you have relevant knowledge or evidence to support who you suspect did it, you can inform the police at the time you make the report.

statute of limitations is usually 7 years, unless murder than forever.
How ever long they need to. You can always call and ask or send a letter.
48 hoursThe vessel operator has 48 hours to file a boating accident report when an injured person requires medical attention beyond first aid.
You must do this right away.
Unless the accident required further investigation, i.e. there was a traffic death or the accident occurred during the comission of a crime, the report should be turned in at the end of the day. It might still have to be approved by the officer's supervisor and go through records, so it could be about three business days before a copy of the report is available to the public.
It varies by state, but don't delay - it's usually not a long time.
most laws for rules of the road are similar in any state. an accident report needs to be filed as soon as possible. check with your local law enforcement for the correct filings.
Once you file a police report of an offense YOU have nothing further to do in the process. Citizens and members of the public do not "press charges." Only the prosecutors office (or DA) can "press charges."
As soon as you leave the scene of the accident you have committed the crime of "hit & run."
