Why Read This

Accidents that occur on campus or school grounds and result in personal injury can have significant liability implications. Designed for use by employees who investigate accidents resulting in personal injury, this checklist covers immediate actions to take at the accident scene and addresses how to:

  • Document conditions at the time of an accident
  • Determine the facts surrounding the accident rather than the accident’s cause or who is to blame
  • Be as objective as possible, and focus on gathering evidence instead of drawing conclusions
  • Conduct an appropriate follow-up investigation
  • Deal with accident parties and witnesses
