Orlando Car Accident Attorney Discusses Police Crash Reports

We constantly take on challenges for our clients. While some people may have a straight-forward property damage claim and try to handle it directly with the car insurance company, there are others with complex Orlando collision cases who later seek our help. At times, the delay prevents us from doing things that could have benefited our client’s position. One difficulty some folks faced when trying to get the insurance company to pay involves an erroneous police crash report.

Insurance adjusters rely on the information documented by law enforcement in the crash report. While Orlando Police and Orange County Sheriff’s Office Deputies try their best to properly document the scene of a car accident and what happened, they have many matters with which to attend. Law enforcement officers arriving at the accident scene must first secure the location. These officers must make sure that no one else will be hurt or involved in a collision due to vehicles or debris in the road way. Whether on I-4, the 408, 17-92, or other major roads, traffic can cause significant congestion following a crash.

When law enforcement officers make a mistake in a police report, it may delay or prevent proper consideration of any property damage claims or bodily injury claims. We have handled cases where police never heard our client’s version of the story because emergency medical personnel had taken our client from the scene. Fortunately, Florida law permits us to prevent any harm from a police report so that we can set the record straight for our clients.

We have represented clients who came to us after other lawyers refused to help them because of an inaccurate police report. How sad for these people to have gone to lawyers who did not believe them or were unwilling to go to trial to prove what really happened. If you have been hurt as a result of some other driver’s carelessness, please let us know. You can call or email us right now.
