If you do not call the police after an accident in situations where there has been an injury or death, you may face fines, a license suspension, or even jail time. It is always best to report the accident and let the police make the determination as to whether a police report is needed.
Additionally, the police report is proof that the accident happened, and it will help identify who is involved. The police report will also list witness information and other pertinent information that you may later need when you file a personal injury claim.
