The following suggestions may be of value if you are involved in a car accident from an insurance perspective. Some suggestions may not be appropriate in particular situations.
The Highway Code has the following to say about road accidents:
If you are involved in an accident which causes
damage or injury to any other person, vehicle, animal or property, you MUST
Give your own and the vehicle owner's name and address, and the registration number of the vehicle, to anyone having reasonable grounds for requiring them.
If you do not give your name and address at the time of the accident, report the accident to the police as soon as reasonably practicable, and in any case within 24 hours.
If another person is injured and you do not
produce your insurance certificate at the time of the accident to a police
officer or to anyone having reasonable grounds to request it, you MUST
Report the accident to the police as soon as possible and in any case within 24 hours and produce your insurance certificate for the police within seven days.
