If you want to know if filing a personal injury claim is an option for you, one of the first places you should look is your police report.
First and foremost, a police report reveals which motorist or motorists broke Georgia traffic laws, which could have directly caused your accident.
Aside from listing traffic violations and determining responsibility for a crash, a police report also shows:
- if medical care was provided at the scene of your crash;
- if arrests were made at the scene of your crash;
- if either party did not have insurance; and
- the damage your vehicle sustained.
While a police report can be extremely valuable, it doesn’t automatically prove the other party broke traffic laws or was at fault for your accident. You’ll want the help of a personal injury lawyer who knows how to use a police report to bolster your entire personal injury claim. Consider it one very important piece of the puzzle in your quest for the compensation you need to recover.
