Accident Information

If You Have an Accident

The driver or owner of each vehicle involved in an accident where there is property damage, injury or death must provide verification that the vehicle was properly insured. The investigating officer will provide both drivers with a green form (FR-10), which must be completed by the insurance company. This insurance verification form must be completed whether you were at fault or not and it must be submitted to DMV within 15 days of the accident. Your insurance company can submit this information electronically.

 

If DMV is unable to verify insurance for the accident, your driver license and your vehicle registrations may be suspended. If suspended you may have to pay up to $650.00 in reinstatement fees and file SR22 for three years from the beginning date of the suspension. If you did not have insurance at the time of the accident, you will also be required to provide proof that you have settled all damages to the other parties involved before you can be reinstated.
