Complete the Joint Report by indicating the contact details of all the drivers and vehicles involved.
Carefully copy the information that is on the driver’s licence, vehicle registration certificate and insurance certificate. If you do not have the necessary information to complete the required fields, please indicate "none" in order to continue.
If there are witnesses, provide their informations in step 1.
When the fields are completed, you can send your report. It will be sent by email. Make sure you have received it before leaving the accident site.
Notify your insurer or broker as soon as possible and forward your Joint Report to them immediately.
Your insurer will establish your liabillity in the collision using the Direct compensation Agreement (DCA) which illustrates just about every possible accident scenario.
Under the DCA, each policyholder is compensated for material damage by his insurer, regardless of whether or not he was at fault for the accident:
- If you are at fault: you will be compensated if your policy has collision coverage. You will have to pay a deductible.
- If you are not at fault: you will be compensated even if your policy does not have collision coverage and you will not have to pay a deductible.
The claim will then be entered in your file in the Fichier central des sinistres automobiles (FCSA).
Your insurer will have the damage to the vehicle appraised by an appraiser to evaluate the cost of the repairs.
