Florida Car Accident: Do I Need A Police Report? Why a Coral Springs Car Accident Lawyer says YES

January 15, 2019

If you were involved in a car accident in Florida, you should always call the police so you can get a police report of the crash, says car accident attorney Andrew Rosenberg. A police report is very important to your case, especially in South Florida where accidents and hit & runs are common.

This video talks about the importance of a police report and why you should always call the police after a Florida Car Accident accident - even if it seems "minor".

On the scene, the police will provide you and the other driver with an exchange of information - called a Driver information exchange. This is a report that includes basic information about you and the other party such as your name, insurance information, car type etc.

Typically, 5-10 days after the car accident the police report should be ready and you can request it. Not only can you request it, but so can your insurance company, the other driver's insurance company, and your car accident attorney. If you're injured - even if it's "just whiplash" - you should always consult an attorney after a car accident in Florida. You never know what kind of compensation you might be legally entitles to unless you ask.

Remember - the insurance company doesn't work for you. An attorney is someone who is fully on your side, who works for you to ensure all your rights are afforded to you.

A police report is one of the very few objective pieces of information when it comes to a car accident, so it is very important to a car accident injury case in South Florida.
