With any serious car accident, law enforcement should be called to the scene to assess the damage and interview everyone involved. The responding officer will prepare a report describing what happened and file it at the local precinct. This paperwork could be a critical piece of evidence in a car accident claim against the responsible party for any injuries sustained, as well as property damage.
If a car accident caused injury to you or a loved one, it is important to contact a skilled car accident lawyer in Sacramento for assistance with your claim. We will explain the importance of the police report and why it may be necessary to help prove your case.
Police reports usually start with general information about the accident and include sections detailing a full account of what transpired, which can prove invaluable to your claim. Important information in these reports may include the following:
The complete police report can corroborate certain details and may increase the strength of your claim. It can also assist you in the following ways:
A police report is inadmissible in the courtroom if the case progresses through trial, but the officer can testify about the accident and give his or her observations to the judge or jury. In addition, the report may be highly useful in settlement negotiations with the insurance company and may convince the insurer to offer a full settlement.

They always keep me up to date on my case. I also felt it was done in a timely manner!
Arnold Law firm provided me with an amazing experience. They were super communicative and assisted me with any needs or questions that I had during my journey to recovery and through financial hardship due to my car accident. I was hit by an uninsured motorist and would have been completely overwhelmed by all of the bills, paperwork, insurance nuances, and legal action needed. Jesus Garcia was an absolute pleasure to work with and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
Met with a lawyer who is taking care of my wife's potential lawsuit. He was nice and his assistant is really on top of things.I'd recommend them if you need representation. No upfront costs and reasonable expectations when suit is settled.
