What you should do at the accident site
As with all accidents fault will need to be established against the other party.
Whether or not the other party is insured and because the Motor Insurers' Bureau (MIB) have very strict time limits, it is very important that the following steps are taken after any accident:
- Take down the details of the other party at the scene, including name, address, telephone, insurance details and vehicle registration number.
- Report the matter to the police immediately. If for any reason this is not possible, report the accident in person to a police station as soon as you can (and get a police reference number) .
- Take details of any other party and any witnesses.
- Contact your own insurers, if relevant
