According to NH. RSA 264:25, Reporting Requirements: In the State of New Hampshire, any Motor Vehicle Accident causing death, personal injury, or combined damage in excess of $1,000 must be reported in writing to the Division of Motor Vehicles within 15 days. This can be accomplished by calling the Police to the scene so that they can file a report. If the police file a report this meets the above requirement, and you as the driver are not required to notify the Division of Motor Vehicles. An alternative to calling the Police is to obtain a State of New Hampshire Motor Vehicle Accident Report form complete it yourself and then mail it to the State. These forms are available at the Goffstown Police Department, as well as at the Registry of Motor Vehicles. By Town Ordinance any accident, no matter how minor, must be reported to the Goffstown Police Department by filling out a Town Accident Report form.
The form must be filled out and returned to the police department within 48 hours of the accident. The penalty for not doing so may require an appearance in court to answer why the Town Ordinance was not honored.
