Depending upon the location and facts, the police may be summoned to the scene to do a report of a car accident. While a police report is an important document, police report conclusions can often be wrong. As a result, police reports are not admissible evidence, should your case go to court.
Our experienced San Diego auto accident attorneys know this and can help you dispute a police report that incorrectly places you at fault for an accident.
How Do You Disprove a Police Report for an Auto Accident?
The police officer’s conclusion to the cause of the accident is based upon many factors, including:
- The police officer’s experience investigating auto accidents
- Any training or any special courses (i.e. accident reconstruction) the police officer attended
- Witness information, if any witnesses stayed around after the car crash
- Statements of all parties involved with the auto accident
- Evidence (skid marks, property damage or debris) of the auto accident.
Police officers are rarely witnesses to car accidents, let alone were present when car accidents occurred. The police only have so many patrol officers available at any given time and it may take awhile for them arrive at the scene of the car accident. The big question is if the officer is qualified to properly fill out an accident report?
With a good auto accident attorney on your side, an incorrect police report should be just a bump in the road to your settlement.
