Why You Need Your Police Report After Your Accident
Every accident is different. Sometimes car or truck accidents are just about property damage and getting your rental car or having your vehicle repaired. In the case of an accident that is involving another party and an accident that is not your fault, you will want to get your accident report to the applicable insurance company so you can begin the process of having your vehicle repaired and getting into a rental car.
In more serious accidents where injuries are involved it is not just a matter of your vehicle but a matter of concern over medical bills, potential lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering and other personal injury damages. In this type of case an accident report will be essential in helping you determine the reported cause of your injury related accident and who may be responsible for compensating you.
Our Georgia injury and accident firm is focused on this second scenario. An accident report or police report (the same document commonly referred to as either) will generally give us a good idea of how a liability insurance carrier (State Farm, Geico, USAA, etc.) may react to a personal injury claim. This process is called making a liability determination. Please note that insurance companies do not always immediately make a determination as soon as they have they have the accident report. It can take a few days or longer.
Ascertaining liability issues should be a priority for anyone involved in a Georgia motor vehicle accident because Georgia is not a no-fault state. To successfully pursue a claim against another party in a Georgia motor vehicle accident a claimant must establish that the other party is at least 51% or more at fault for the accident. This is referred to as modified comparative fault.
What Info Is On a GA Police Report?
It would probably be easier to list things not on a Georgia motor vehicle crash report, meaning the document has a lot of information. The information that you will find on a Marietta Police Department accident report includes information about all the people involved, the vehicles, weather, road conditions, injuries, collision data and the possible causes or factors that contributed to the accident. There is also a diagram and a narrative statement from the investigating officer. Depending on the accident, there may also be statements from witnesses as well.
All of this aforementioned information is intended to give an independent glance at what happened to cause the accident, as well as the results of the accident. For instance, accidents involving serious injuries or unlawful conduct may have information that may not be on a accident report for an incident that involved minor property damage with no injuries. This would differ from a police report involving drunk driving or reckless driving that may have additional information related to criminal charges and arrest information.
No Two Accidents or Accident Reports Are The Same
Whether you are involved in a serious accident or something to the contrary, it is always a best practice to get your accident report for your potential insurance claims as well as to have a copy for your own records. Because accidents are all different, we find that many times the reports can be unclear or difficult to understand. Because of the significance of what an accident report can mean to someone’s insurance claim, we always recommend speaking to an attorney about your report before assuming that you understand everything that is says.
Additionally, if you find that your injury accident report is incorrect or that you believe that the insurance company is reading it incorrectly, it is a good idea to let an experienced Georgia car or truck accident lawyer review it and speak to you about your accident and injury case. Big insurance companies are not going to go out of their way to help you understand your accident report and remember that they do not work for you. Please contact our office for help with questions related to your accident report.
