I think the best practice is to always notify the police as soon as you are involved in a crash, be it in Milwaukee or elsewhere. It appears that this is the safest way to make sure you are being properly taken care of and not in danger of being the victim of some type of discrepancy in the accident report. Let the police guide you.
