How Accident Reports Are Used
Police accident reports are generally completed between 5-7 days after an automobile accident has occurred. Insurance companies will then work from these reports to determine fault and how much a claim is worth. Insurance companies will also scrutinize these reports closely to find discrepancies between your account of the events of the accident and the accounts of others in an attempt to reduce the amount of money paid out on your claim. Therefore, if you have been injured in an automobile accident, it may be beneficial to review your accident report as soon as possible to check for any problems or mistakes. Personal injury lawyers can review your accident report with you to help you weigh your legal options or to help you gather evidence to dispute the report’s findings.
What to Do If There Is a Mistake
Auto accident reports are not necessarily final. When the information on the accident report contradicts the evidence gathered and the personal knowledge of the parties involved, those impacted can and should fight to correct this information. If this has happened to you, it is important that you contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to represent your best interests.
