Any party involved in a car accident may contact a police department to discuss the contents of a police report in which they are included. An officer responding to an accident is tasked with a very difficult job: to look at the evidence available to them in that moment and make a judgement as to who and/or what caused the car accident. Details such as the spelling of a name or the auto insurance policy information of one of the drivers may be reported inaccurately. Key pieces of evidence may be overlooked or not accounted for, and this may lead to the investigating officer placing blame for the wreck where it is not warranted. If that is the case, an attorney may be able to provide you with the measures necessary to contact the relevant department to correct the police report.
