How to Get Your Longmont Accident Report
Unfortunately, car accidents happen when you least expect them. If you suffered injuries in a car accident, you have a right to recover compensation against the at-fault driver.
However, you must prove liability to recover compensation. One way to help prove liability is by obtaining a copy of your Longmont accident report. The attorneys at Sloat, Nicholson & Hoover, PC. can help.
Why Are Longmont Accident Reports Important?
Longmont accident reports provide valuable information about a car accident as detailed by a police officer. Your personal injury attorney and insurance companies use the information provided in these reports to obtain an unbiased viewpoint regarding a car accident. Information provided in these reports includes the following:
- The date, time, and location of the car accident;
- The road and weather conditions related to the crash;
- The damage sustained to vehicles involved in the crash;
- Information related to the scene of the collision; and
- Details about injuries sustained by those involved.
Insurance companies and personal injury attorneys use the information in an accident report to support finding fault in a car accident. Although an accident report alone is likely not enough to establish responsibility, combined with other facts, it may support your compensation claim.
