Traffic reports contain important information that can be used to prove liability after an auto accident. These legal documents are filled out by law enforcement officers who respond to the scene of a collision. These reports can help strengthen your claim for compensation, so you can receive a fair settlement for your accident-related damages.
A personal injury lawyer will negotiate with the other driver’s insurance company and use a crash report as evidence that the other driver should be held accountable for their negligence.

The important information in a crash report that can strengthen your claim for compensation can include the reporting police officer’s opinion regarding which driver was negligent and how the accident occurred, a description of your injuries and vehicle damage, any citations that were issued for traffic law violations, any arrests made, a diagram of the crash site, and more.
