The experienced car accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan know this. That's why we place so much value on the official police accident report for your accident.
If you are involved in a car crash, you should call the police. They will conduct an initial investigation and fill out an Indiana Officer's Standard Crash Report. This report will provide a lot of valuable information about your accident. It is an important document when pursuing a claim for financial compensation.
This report is an official document that explains who was involved, as well as when and where the accident happened. It will include contact information for the drivers, passengers and witnesses. It will also note whether there were any injuries and what they were. There will also be a description of how the accident happened, based on the officer's investigation.
If you are seeking compensation for your injuries, this report is also important because the officer may note whether the other driver was negligent. For example, the driver may have been tested for alcohol use, or the officer may have noted the driver was fatigued or fell asleep.
