When to Report an Accident to the Police

If you witness an accident, or if you are involved in a relatively minor accident, you might be wondering whether you should contact the police.  Some people are naturally hesitant to involve the authorities if they don’t have to.  Other people believe that the costs related to the accident can be resolved amicably with the other party.

We believe that it is always important to contact the police.

Injuries can become more severe in the days following the accident and it can be difficult to assess the severity of injuries and property damage at the scene of the accident.  People who seem amicable at the scene of the accident can become hostile when they realize how much they are going to have to pay.

Since it is impossible to predict the future, it is important to hope for the best and plan for all contingencies by contacting the police and a Pennsylvania car accident lawyer after every accident.
