Why is a police report important to a car accident lawsuit? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

A police report can be a valuable piece of evidence that a Virginia car accident attorney can use. The report can verify who the at-fault driver was, as well as the actual damages – both to victim and property – the crash caused. Since it is an objective accounting, it can have more weight with a judge or jury compared to statements by the actual drivers of the crash, which may not be as objective.
