ACCIDENT AFTERSHOCK, NOW WHAT? – 3 PART BLOG

Part 3- Exchange necessary information with involved motorists/pedestrians

Following a collision you are obligated to exchange certain information with other motorists involved in the collision, injured pedestrians, owners of damaged property and, of course, the responding police officers.   For example, you are obligated to exchange your name and address, driver’s license information, vehicle registration information, and insurance identification card.  If the property of another, including a parked car, was involved in the collision, you are obligated to locate the owner of the property to exchange information.  Further, if it appears that any person’s property damage exceeds $1,000, involved motorists must file an MV-104 Form with the Department of Motor Vehicles (“DMV”) within ten days of the collision.
