If you’re filing an accident claim or lawsuit, a crash report is an important document that you must obtain as soon as possible. An accident report can include the police officer’s opinion concerning which driver was negligent and how the accident occurred. The report also includes information such as a description of personal injuries, vehicle damage, witness statements, and other vital info you’ll need if you plan to pursue a claim for compensation.
