What should I do if I've been involved in a minor car crash?
After a non-injury crash you should swap names and addresses with other motorists involved. If the crash involved another person's property, such as a fence, you should report it to the owner of the property within 48 hours of the crash. If the owner cannot be located report to police within 60 hours of the crash.
All crashes resulting in injury (such as broken bones or a night in hospital) should be reported by calling 105 or visiting your local police as soon as is practicable and no later than 24 hours from the time of the crash.
