If an accident has occurred, only with material damage, a bilateral statement of findings shall be filled in. In case of disagreement between the parties - who is to blame for the accident, a team of traffic police visits the scene.

  • accident report or bilateral statement of findings;
  • certificate of your bank account;
  • documents for paid expenses;
  • car documents;
