When Your Police
Report is Inaccurate?
Report is Inaccurate?
Mistakes in Police Reports
To err is human. This is why there are laws out there
meant to protect you. Sometimes police reports may
contain errors you may need to correct. If this is your
case, you may request having your police report
amended. While challenging a police report may seem
easy, it can be difficult at times since you must gather
sufficient evidence to prove the information in your
police report is inaccurate.
Personal Injury Claim
Accurate documentation of your accident is essential to
the outcome of your Personal Injury Claim. This is
particularly true for vehicle accidents where the police
generally provide an account of the accident. While this
information may not be used in court, your Ventura
County car accident attorney will take a look at it and
consider what it says.
Perhaps you disagree with a witness statement.
Remember people tend to dramatize their account of
things. If the police are unwilling to change or amend
your police report, you can always attach your account
of the Accident to the police report. The officer will
decide whether or not your story is credible. It is
important you try your best to have an accurate police
report as it may impact the outcome of your case and
the amount of settlement may be far less than you
At The Scene Of The Accident
This is where things happened and you must document
every detail you remember. It is best if you write down
this information immediately after the accident. Some
things to keep in mind include:
● Place, date and time where the accident occurred.
● Details about injuries sustained in the accident.
● Your personal info and statements from witnesses.
● How was the weather at the time of the accident?
● Details about the vehicles involved in the collision
● Details about damage to vehicles
● Causes of the accident
The police generally take pictures of the accident scene
and of the damages caused by the accident. If there is
evidence that a Driver was Under the Influence, a field
sobriety test will also be administered. If the cars are in
bad shape, the police may also call a towing company to
have the vehicles removed from the street.
