Claims and Accidents
The office of Risk Management works with the entire University community to identify risks and resolve losses. All Boston College personnel should consider their safety and the safety of others while working.
Boston College operates a fleet of owned and leased vehicles. Boston College has an insurance program to protect the vehicles and all authorized drivers. Drivers of vehicles involved in an accident must follow the steps under the Auto Claims Reporting tab and complete the Massachusetts Operator's Report found in each vehicle, returning all documentation to Risk Management.
Property losses are those that arise from damage or destruction to University equipment, buildings or assets.
