A police accident report is a detailed document with all the facts about your car accident. Often, insurance companies and the court system use the accident report when they review your claim.
It’s important to verify all the details and make sure they are 100% accurate.
Requesting a copy of your accident report is a great way to help your legal team help you get the most for your losses.
