Important information to get a hold of
Exchange driver's particulars; name, NRIC, address, contact number, car registration number and name of insurance company.
If there are witnesses, take down their particulars and contact numbers. Record the date, time and location of the accident.
If a camera is available, take pictures of the damaged vehicles, otherwise take note of the damages on paper. Do not admit or discuss liability at this stage.
Report the accident
For accidents involving injury/death/pedestrian/cyclist/government or foreign vehicles/government property, make a police report as soon as possible or within 24 hours of the accident and complete the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA) Motor Accident Report (MAR) Form as well.
For non-injury accidents, while not required to make a police report but parties involved would still need to complete and submit the GIA MAR Form to the insurers as soon as possible. The GIA MAR Form is available from the insurers.
Along the way, if you receive any Writ of Summons, Traffic Summons or any other correspondence from third parties, inform and provide full details immediately to your insurer.
