If I disagree with an officer's traffic accident report,
what can I do?
Officers are traffic accident report takers only.
They assess each accident on a case by case basis. Officers
make a determination as to the contributing factors in the
accident, but they DO NOT determine fault. If you disagree
with the final accident report, you should contact the
officer to discuss your concerns. The officer has the final
say in how the report is written. Who pays for damage and
other related costs is a matter which must be determined in
civil court and/or between insurance companies. You should
contact your insurance agent and/or an attorney.
I have discovered the insurance information on the
accident report is not valid. What can I do?
You may file against the other driver for no

you will need is contained in the accident report.
