If you get involved in a car accident, you must follow several steps in processing an insurance claim, as well as filing a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages. From seeking medical attention to contacting an experienced personal injury attorney, you cross off each step on a to-do list to strengthen your case to receive compensation that helps you recover from financial losses. One of the most important steps involved in handling the aftermath of a vehicle collision is to obtain a copy of the formal traffic crash report.
Often called a police report, a traffic crash report represents a legal document that accompanies the information sent with an insurance claim. It also is an important legal document that you send when filing a civil lawsuit. The legal document, which is completed by a law enforcement officer, contains a summary of the information associated with a car accident. Your personal injury attorney requests a copy of a traffic crash report to include with every other document filed with an insurance claim and a civil lawsuit.
