Why is it important to get your police report as quickly as possible?
- Police Report Accuracy: You can verify the facts to make sure the investigating officer . Often if you don’t ask for corrections with any police report errors within a few days of the accident, the investigating officer will refuse to change the report. Sometimes the police report will fail to list the passengers or have other errors that if not corrected could make it harder to prove the other driver was negligent the adjuster.
- Insurance Information: Often you will not have the liability adjuster’s information unless you have the police report. In this past this was exchanged at the accident scene, but investigating police officers often discourage the exchange of information and simply tell you to get the police report. Quick notice to the negligent driver’s insurance adjuster will speed up the property damage claim process. It is also important that you provide written notice of any potential uninsured or under-insured motorist claims (UM claims) to the insurance company for the vehicle you were in, as well as to your own auto insurance carrier. Failing to provide this required notice could void out your UM coverage.
