Police Accident Report

When you are involved in a car accident, you might wonder whether you need a police report to file an insurance claim for personal injury. The truth is, in California, a police report is not determinative of fault and cannot be admitted as evidence in a trial for personal injury damages. However, a police report could be valuable if it properly documents the scene of the accident, witness statements, injuries, property damage, ambulance and hospital information, insurance information, and other details that could be useful to a claim adjuster, a personal injury lawyer, or an insurance defense lawyer.

While insurance companies often rely on police reports to resolve lawsuits or car accident personal injury claims, they do not necessarily determine the outcome of the case, especially if the injuries are catastrophic, and the insured is disputing facts within the police report. Similarly, an experienced car accident attorney will fight for their client's rights, despite the police report placing fault on the lawyer's client.

At the Majlessi Law Firm, we have handled thousands of injured clients' car accident cases regardless of the conclusions of the investigating police officers' determination of fault. Our car accident injury lawyers are ready to help you fight for your rights and recover the damages you deserve. Even if the police report inaccurately attributes fault to you, you still have the right to fight in a court of law. We are here to guide you through the legal process, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court, if necessary.

In conclusion, while a police report is not necessary to file a claim with defendant's insurance company or file a lawsuit against the party at fault, it can provide valuable information. However, it is important to remember that a police report is not admissible as evidence in any court of law in California. Therefore, if you have been injured in a car accident, contact our law firm to learn how we can help you navigate the complex legal system and obtain the compensation you deserve.
