The Joint Report : To simplify claims settlement
You have a fender bender with no injuries. What to do in that case?
First, stay calm. Then, open your GAA Joint Report mobile app, or take out the paper version from your glove compartment and fill it.
Should you call the police?
There’s no need to call the police for a fender bender, no road obstruction or if no one’s injured. All you need is the Joint Report. That is why download it in advance, or keeping a copy in the glove compartment is always a good thing.
However, if someone has been injured, you should always call emergency services.
A tool that’s easy to complete
All you need to complete the Joint Report is:
- your driver’s license,
- your 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
