Motor Vehicle Claims
Complete the Supervisor's Accident Report when the accident involves a university-owned, Motor Pool, state, rental, courtesty, or personal (driven on university business) vehicle. You must submit all vehicle losses using this form; you may e-mail your completed for to the Office of Risk Management.
- Motor Vehicle Claims are subject to a deductible; departments are responsible for the $5,000 deductible - report all claims regardless of the dollar amount. Risk Management will work directly with the responsible department to coordinate the repair or replacement of the property.
- When a university vehicle is damaged by another party (third party), who is responsible for the accident, Risk Management will file a claim with the third party's insurance company. No deductible applies to these third party claims. Report the accident immediately to Risk Management.
- If the loss is due to a hit-and-run, theft, break-in, or vandalism, these incidents are criminal and need to be reported to law enforcement immediately. If the incident occured on university property, contact PSU's Campus Public Safety Office, (503) 725-4407.
