  • Notify your supervisor
  • Contact emergency personnel if needed. If it’s possible, call your supervisor as soon as accident occurs and/or call 271-4226, Risk Manager.

Off Campus Accidents
Regardless of the severity of accident:

  • Notify Police
  • Notify the Risk Manager or the Office of the Vice President for Financial Planning and Administration
  • Notify your supervisor

Contact emergency personnel if needed. If it’s possible, call your supervisor as soon as accident occurs and/or call 271-4226, Risk Manager.

Contact the nearest law enforcement official. Do not make any statement concerning assumption of liability. Give only the information required by the law enforcement authorities. Do not sign any statements except those required by law enforcement or risk management officials.

Obtain the following information of other drivers and any other persons involved:

  • Name, address and telephone numbers
  • Vehicle registration information
  • Drivers license number
  • Insurance company name

Report the accident to risk management at MWSU. Complete in full an Automobile Loss Notice Form and return it to Popplewell Hall 226. This form can be obtained from the downloadable forms section of this website, (816) 271-4226.

Request a copy of the police report and forward to Popplewell Hall 226.

It is better if the police are notified in the event of any accident. Example: You back into someone and there is no obvious damage. A police report is not filed. Later that night they wreck their car and accuse you of causing the damage.
