My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: California
What to Do After Getting Rear-Ended – California San Jose
Yesterday (17 March) late evening a car rear ended me while I was stopped at a red light at an intersection. There were some minor damages at the back of the car. This is a rental car I have taken from avis. Nobody was hurt and the driver admitted mistake to me.
I did not have much idea as to what should have been done then as this was first experience of this kind for me. So I called 911 but the operator refused to send any cops as she said 1. There was no injury 2. There was no traffic block.
I still requested her to send someone but she said I need to call my insurance. That’s it.
So I took the name, phone number, license number and Insurance number of the other person.
I plan to call insurance company tomorrow.
Pls answer as I am new to whole process:
1. What is the recommended process to follow? Did I follow correct steps?
2. I am going to call Insurance Company tomorrow? What else do I need to do?
3. I wonder why the 911 did not send cops although I requested so many times?
Pls share your experience and advice kindly.
