Your Responsibility

Mississippi does not require you to report an auto accident to the Department of Public Safety, as long as all parties involved in the accident agree about the circumstances of the accident and the responsibilities for repairs.

However, it's wise to call local law enforcement after a serious wreck.. The officer working the accident will complete any forms you might need, so request copies of them a few days after the accident.

Remember the Details

Even if you don't file any forms, it's a good idea to write down all the details of the accident. Be sure to exchange information with all parties, including names, addresses, driver's license numbers, tag numbers, vehicle descriptions, and insurance information. If there were witnesses, you'll want to record their names and addresses, too. Keep this information in your own files in case you need it later.
