- Don't verbally admit or sign anything that is regarding fault.
- Don't talk to the other driver's insurance company. Refer them to your lawyer.
- Don't accept a settlement from the insurance company that is less than what you deserve.
- Don't authorize any repairs until the insurance adjuster inspects the vehicle and sees the extent of the damage.

Yes! No matter how minor your accident appears, you should always contact police. You may potentially suffer injuries or property damage that is not readily apparent. Police reports are good evidence to have when making an insurance claim.
