Why You Need a Copy of Your Accident Report

A traffic accident report is a report filed by police containing facts about an accident. An accident report usually includes the following information:

  • the drivers’ and passengers’ names, contact information, and insurance details
  • injuries or fatalities suffered in the accident
  • damage to vehicles and other property
  • statements from witnesses
  • a description of the accident

It is important to obtain a copy of the accident report and read it carefully to make sure it is completely accurate. Officers have been known to make factual or subjective errors on their accident reports.

However, disputing the facts of a police report can be tricky. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may have trouble getting your traffic accident report amended, but an experienced auto accident attorney may be able to help.
