Why is a Police Report important?
After you've been involved in an auto accident, you'll need a copy of your police report in order to ensure that your auto insurance company has everything that they need to pursue damages against the driver who caused your accident. You will also need a copy of your police report for your Phoenix injury attorney so that they can properly and accurately file all of the necessary paperwork.
What’s in a Police Report?
A police report takes down vital information about the drivers who are involved in a collision:
- The address, telephone number, and other critical information about the other driver involved in your collision.
- The determination of the responding officer as to who was at fault for the accident
- Notes that can help insurance adjustors and other interested parties determine not only fault, but also level of fault.
- How, when, where, and under what conditions the incident occurred.
