Pittsburgh Car Accident Lawyers – Reading Your Accident Report
Our attorneys build strong cases to help you recover compensation
If you were hurt in a car accident in Pittsburgh or anywhere in western Pennsylvania that was caused by negligence, you deserve financial compensation. Recovering compensation can be complicated. Negligent drivers deny doing anything wrong and insurance companies are not on your side. That’s why you need an experienced and aggressive car accident attorney to fight for you.
At Romanow Law Group, we know the challenges and obstacles that injury victims face after a car accident. The insurance company has its own version of what happened and will try to use that against you. They may even blame you for what happened. That’s why our legal team investigates your accident to get the facts.
One of the most important things we look at is the crash report that police filled out after responding to your accident. An officer will record many details about your crash. This is valuable information as we build a case to help you recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered.
The accident report will include information about:
- Accident details
The report will include basic information about the crash, such as the time and location where it occurred, as well as road and weather conditions. An officer will also note if there were any traffic signals or posted speed limits. There will also be a narrative and diagram that gives an account of how the accident happened, as understood by the officer.
- The Other Driver
The other driver’s name, address, contact information, and license number will be included. There will also be information about the car that was involved, including make, model, and year, as well as the license plate number and VIN. The report will also note whether distraction or alcohol use was a factor in the accident.
The report will note whether drivers and passengers were injured and the hospital that they were taken to for medical attention.
Contact the police department that responded to your accident to get a copy of the report. There will be a fee. Review the report carefully. If you disagree with anything in it, or if there are errors, let us know immediately.
Our experienced car accident attorneys are ready to go through your accident report carefully for information that can help your claim. We also gather evidence and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists who can help us understand how your crash happened.
We use the information we gather from the accident report and other sources to build a strong case that holds the negligent driver accountable. We then demand compensation for the injuries you have suffered. If the insurance company won’t negotiate a settlement that meets your need, we are ready to fight for you in court.
