Practical tips

Some practical accident statement tips:

  • Complete an accident statement whenever possible, even in the case of an accident abroad. 
  • Remember that accident statement forms are identical throughout Europe.
  • Write legibly using a ball-point pen.
  • Complete as many statements as there were vehicles involved.
  • Take the time to complete the statement carefully and as precisely as possible.
  • Under no circumstances should you admit liability, as this will be assessed by your insurer.
  • Avoid contradictions between the sketch and the circumstances ticked.
  • Apart from an accident statement and a police report, you must avoid signing any documents in a language that you are not familiar with.
