A car accident police report is a report that the investigating police officer files after a car accident. It typically includes both facts from the car accident, as well as the officer’s impressions.
Key facts like the date and time of the accident, location of the accident, identifying information of all parties involved, identifying information of key witnesses, and statements from both parties and witnesses should be included on the police report.
The officer may also include his or her own opinions about the cause of the accident and any theories of liability. If you have any trouble obtaining a police report after your car accident, please contact us immediately for assistance.
