If you or somebody you care about has been involved in a vehicle accident in Atlanta, there are various steps that you need to take to ensure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to. One of the most important documents that you will need after a crash occurs is the official accident report. This document is going to be used to determine liability by insurance carriers or during a personal injury case. However, what happens if information in the police report is incorrect? Here, we want to discuss how you can request changes to a police report after a Georgia vehicle accident.
Because the police report will weigh heavily on decisions made by the insurance carrier or during a personal injury trial, if one is necessary, it is understandable that a person will want to correct any information within the report that is wrong.
If there are factual errors in the police report, it may not be terribly difficult to amend it. However, if the information that needs changing is in dispute, such as information that revolves around fault, changing the report is going to be difficult, if not impossible.
If you or somebody you care about has been injured in an accident caused by the actions of another driver in Georgia, you should be entitled to various types of compensation. However, inaccurate police reports can affect the compensation you receive. You should be entitled to coverage of your medical bills, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering damages, and more. However, if an inaccurate police report places the blame on you, you may not receive any compensation at all. Even if the inaccuracies place partial blame on you for the accident, this could reduce the total compensation you receive.
