Calling Police When You Have an Accident Can Save Headaches Later
Minor Accidents Don’t Usually Get Police Response
Most car accidents are minor. Drivers check the damage to their vehicles and agree that there are no issues and go their separate ways. Sometimes there is minor damage to one or both vehicles. Fear of insurance surcharges and potential rate increases tempt many drivers to negotiate an agreement of a small financial settlement in lieu of involving the police. This is sometimes a successful arrangement, but not always.
