Accident reports contain pertinent information about the accident and the parties involved. If you want to file an injury claim or get a rental car you will need to obtain your Georgia motor vehicle crash report. Not only do you need to get it but you need to review it and understand what it says as soon as it is available.
A car crash accident report or what may also be referred to as a police report provides insight into what the police or law enforcement that responded to the accident scene think happened. It reports what each driver told to the police, has info about vehicle damages and most importantly the injuries suffered by the people involved in the accident. Those parties can include drivers, passengers and even pedestrians. The accident report has the insurance information your will need to be able to file your insurance claim(s) and the contact for all the parties involved including witnesses.
Report Codes And Accident Liability
People want to get the accident report so they know who was blamed for causing the accident. This issue is relevant in Georgia because Georgia is not a no-fault state. The issue of liability in a car accident in Georgia is important because it is required to show at least 51 percent fault on the part of the other party in order to successfully pursue an accident report. Please note that an accident report does not divvy fault percentages but insurance companies and courts of law do.
There are a lot of different codes listed on a Georgia motor vehicle accident report, including the report used by the Atlanta Police Department for the accidents that they are in charged of handling. The codes are for the purpose of listing which party is thought by the Atlanta Police to be at fault for the accident. Remember that the just because the report may have fault as undetermined or written in a way contrary to what you believe happened, you do have options. Those options start with contacting an experienced Atlanta car accident lawyer for help in determining the bottom line on what the report says versus the real facts, evidence and what can be proved.
On the first page of the police report you should see some fields for operator contributing factors and factors related to road condition and vehicle condition. All of those fields are relevant when you are reading one of these reports and you are trying to figure out what the accident report is saying. If you are confused by the report don’t assume the worst. The police report is not the final word on who will be held responsible for the accident. In many cases the report may be incorrect or in need of requesting an amendment. An experienced Atlanta accident lawyer can help you with that.
