If you are involved in a road traffic accident you should call the police straight away and wait until they have arrived. Polish law also dictates that you should offer first aid to any accident victims and stay at the scene. 

What to do in an emergency

Accidents involving animals, wild or domesticated must be reported to the police. In any accident where someone is seriously injured, the police must be called and the scene left as it was until they arrive although casualties can be moved if they are in further danger. If there are only bumps and scratches there is no obligation to call the police.
