Why Do I Need to Get a Copy of My Collision Report?

If you were involved in a motor vehicle collision that was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation that will cover the cost of any accident related expenses. Obtaining a copy of your report is one of the first steps toward proving the other driver was liable. A collision report contains information including police activity, the exact address of each party involved, and preliminary investigation findings concerning which driver the police officer believed was negligent. It also includes other helpful information such as any citations issued, a diagram of the accident scene, vehicle owner information, a description of any visible injuries you sustained in the collision, any damage done to your vehicle, and types of crime committed, if any.

If you’re working with an experienced accident lawyer, they will use this information when negotiating with an insurance company to fight for a fair settlement and hold the responsible parties accountable for the harm they have caused.
