What should I do if the police report is wrong?

July 17, 2023
If you've been in a car accident and the police report is wrong, it can be frustrating and overwhelming. However, it's important to take action to ensure that your rights are protected.

After filing a police report, review it carefully and make note of any errors or inaccuracies. If there are mistakes, contact the police department and request that they amend the report. Be sure to provide any evidence you have to support your claim.

If the police department refuses to make changes to the report, don't panic. You still have options. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you navigate the legal system and fight for your rights. They can gather evidence, interview witnesses, and build a strong case on your behalf.

Can my lawyer have the police report changed for me?

No, your lawyer cannot change the police report for you in a car accident case.

The police report is an official document that is created by the responding officer(s) based on their observations and investigation of the accident scene. It is considered a legal record and altering it would be illegal and unethical. However, your lawyer can review the police report and challenge any inaccuracies or inconsistencies in it through the legal process.
