The Police Report and Your Car Accident Claim

If another driver leaves you injured in a car accident, you’ll need to obtain just compensation for the physical, financial, and emotional damages you’ve suffered in order to reach your fullest recovery.

If this is the difficult position you find yourself in, reach out to an experienced Beverly Hills car accident attorney today.

Proving Fault

Your car accident claim will come down to demonstrating the other driver’s fault in the matter and establishing the losses you experienced as a result. If you are injured in a car accident, alerting the authorities is paramount, and while the police report that is forthcoming may not prove the other driver’s fault, it can help build the foundation for your strongest claim by accomplishing all the following:

  • Determining where and when the accident occurred
  • Recording the name, contact information, driver’s license number, license plate number, and insurance information for each driver involved
  • Providing an explanation of all known injuries and property damage
  • Providing an explanation of any complaints of potential injuries

The police report can also include an assessment of what the officer believes caused the accident and information about identified driver negligence, such as impairment. Even if the police report does not support your position, it’s important to assess it in relation to your claim because you can rest assured that the insurance company will have a copy.
