The Joint Report

To speed up and facilitate claims settlement if you have an accident.

A fender bender with no injuries

What to do in that case? First, stay calm. Then, open your Joint Report mobile app or take out the Joint Report from your glove compartment and fill it in.

Were you right not to call the police?

Absolutely! There’s no need to call the police for a fender bender and if no one’s injured. All you need is the Joint Report, which is why it’s important you keep a copy in the glove compartment or download the application on your phone. However, if someone has been injured, you should always call the police and they will issue an accident report.

The Joint Report is a user-friendly tool that’s easy to complete when there’s been an accident with no injuries. It allows the parties to identify themselves and report the accident to their respective insurers very quickly.

The Joint Report, an admission of liability?

Not at all. The Joint Report is simply a document that describes the accident. It doesn’t represent an admission of liability. It serves only to identify the parties involved in the accident and to speed up the claims settlement process with your insurer. 

A tool that’s easy to complete

All you need to complete the Joint Report is your driver’s license, registration certificate and proof of insurance.

With the mobile app, each party will be able to take two pictures of the damages for the insurers.

After that, all that’s left to do is for you and the other driver to sign the Joint Report. The application enables each driver to send a copy to their own e-mail address, as well as to their respective insurers’, if they wish so.

If using the printed version, give the other driver one of the copies, keep the other and send it to your insurer as soon as possible.

With this information, your insurer will be able to open your claims file and let you know the steps to take for the repair of your vehicle.
