Georgia Auto Accident Lawyers, Montlick & Associates, Discuss the Best Way to Handle Errors in Police Auto Accident Reports

With over 340,000 traffic accidents in Georgia each year, even the most experienced drivers are statistically at risk of being involved in a car crash. That's why it's important to know what to do at the scene of an accident, and why the Georgia Auto Accident Lawyers, at Montlick & Associates, created this Accident Checklist to print out and keep in your glove compartment. The checklist includes important steps to take at the scene of an accident, including getting immediate medical help for any injured person, and summoning the police to the scene of the accident. Watch the video above to learn why it is also important to take pictures and make your own written notes about the accident, if you are able to do so. Having your own photos and written notes can be especially helpful should the Police Crash Report contain mistakes or omissions.

A Police Crash Report or Auto Accident Report contains important information regarding location, date, time and identification of the persons and vehicles involved, as well as other information regarding who was at fault. If you discover errors in the report, it is important to contact the police officer and alert the officer of the error as soon it is discovered. It is also important to make the police officer's supervisor aware of the mistake in the Crash Report. Generally, the report itself may not be able to be changed but this will create a clear record of your belief that the report was inaccurate. At Montlick and Associates, our Georgia auto accident lawyers have been representing those seriously injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents in the greater Atlanta area and throughout the state of Georgia for over 25 years. As part of our goal to be the best personal injury law firm in Georgia, we will work hard to protect your rights and will always request a copy of the Police Auto Accident Report that is prepared following your traffic collision.
