Car accident reports issued by law enforcement agencies can be powerful evidence when negotiating with insurance companies about your injuries. The opinions of the investigating officer will be shown in the report regarding the cause of the accident and fault of the parties involved.
However, it is important to remember that the police do not have final say on who is financially responsible for an accident. That is a civil matter and is ultimately up to the courts if the parties cannot reach a settlement.
You do not need to obtain a copy of an accident report yourself before you seek the advice of a personal injury attorney. We always obtain the report for our clients.
