I've recently read several posts here where people have commented they were in a crash and didn't get a report for some reason.
* I just retired after 20 years as a traffic cop in a large busy Florida
County. All I did was work crashes, big or small or fatal and write tickets.
I'll say this in hopes some of you will remember this:
ALWAYS ALWAYS GET A FREAKING CRASH REPORT DONE....ON SCENE BY THE RESPONDING DEPUTY, TROOPER, OFFICER OR COMMUNITY SERVICE AIDE.
ALWAYS! Even in parking lots!
Demand it! If they are hesitant, ***** footing saying its minor or too busy. Ask for their supervisor to respond!
Get a report! You WONT get one done after the fact! Your insurance company WILL f*** you if you don't!
On scene you will get a card with a case number on it and the other drivers info including insurance. Later, a full copy will be available to you and your insurance company.
