Incident Reporting Instructions
Please see the Contact page for the name and contact information of our Insurance Coordinator.
Whenever An Accident Occurs
An Incident Report form must be completed immediately after an accident occurs and mailed or faxed to American Specialty Insurance & Risk Services, Inc. or submitted via web form as indicated below. This holds true whether the person involved is a participant or a spectator, or whether or not you feel the incident will result in a claim.
Although you may not have sufficient information to initially answer all questions, it is important that the form be completed as fully as possible at the time of the accident. Do not delay sending in the report form; an incomplete form is better than none at all. Be certain to include your name and daytime telephone number where indicated on the form.
The form contains sections to capture information regarding injury to persons, damage to property, and accidents involving autos. If you have any questions or need assistance regarding the completion of the Incident Report form, please call American Specialty at (800) 566-7941.
Mail or fax the completed Incident Report to:American Specialty Insurance & Risk Services, Inc.
7609 W. Jefferson Blvd, Suite 150
Fort Wayne, Indiana 46804-4133
