It can be frightening to think about reporting a car accident to the police. Whether you are at fault or not, it can feel like you are admitting some wrongdoing. It may also be difficult to know what to say and who to say it to.
Whether or not you should call the police after a car accident depends on many factors. If the accident is minor and there are no injuries, you may not need to call the police. The police may not be able to do much in a minor accident. If the accident is more serious, or if there are injuries, you should call the police. The police can help to determine fault, and they can also help those with injuries get medical attention.
