Vehicle Accident Report Form
If you are involved in an accident:
* First, assess the condition of any passengers in your vehicle.
* If there are injuries, request medical assistance immediately.
* Call the police- we want an accident report completed by the police no matter how minor the incident.
* Remove the vehicle from the street if leaving it there creates a safety hazard, but do not leave the scene of the accident until released by the police officer.
* Contact immediate supervisor/fleet/safety administrator.
* Complete the vehicle accident report at the scene if able to or as soon as possible.
* You may provide the other party involved in the accident with your name, the company name, the company's phone number, vehicle identification, and insurance information, BUT DO NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY OR ADMIT LIABILITY. This is a "legal call" that should be made by our insurance company's claims department.
