Tips

  • If the accident caused property damage only, you still have to file the New York DMV Accident Report form and exchange information about your driver license, insurance, and registration with the involved drivers.
  • If a person is injured or killed, you are required to notify the police immediately and it is expected that you will also file the MV-104 as soon as possible by the NY State Vehicle and Traffic Law.
  • You must locate the owner or contact the police if other property (not owned by either party) is damaged or if a domestic animal is injured, you must locate the owner and/or contact the police.
  • If personal injury or death was caused and was left behind by a driver, he will face criminal charges.
  • Do not hesitate to file the New York DMV Accident Report. Filing this does not mean that you were at fault. The accident will appear on the records of all the involved drivers.
