How important is the police report in a car accident injury case? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A police report can be critical to proving negligence in a car accident case. The report will contain where the accident happened, how it happened, the type of crash it was, whether any driver was cited for a traffic violation or arrested, and accounts of what happened by any witnesses to the crash. This report can be used by the victim’s attorney as evidence in the lawsuit.
