If you’re in a car accident, do you always need to contact the police? What if the accident happens on private property? In this video, Memphis car accident lawyer Darrell Castle discusses the importance of calling the police after any crash on the road.
Yes it’s always a good idea to call the police – somebody should call the police after your accident. If there are injuries, of course the answer is obvious, but it’s a good idea to have a record for insurance purposes and so forth.
The insurance company is going to want to know: did you call the police? Because they want to see the police investigation report.
Even if the accident’s on private property, when the police might not do a report if there’s no injury, it’s still a good idea to call them to have it on record that you did.
