How are Police Reports Used in Los Angeles Car accidents cases?

Los Angeles Police Department reports can play a critical role in the development of your car accident case. Often, the Los Angeles Police Department is called to the scene of an accident by the parties involved, or is alerted by witnesses who see the accident occur. If there were any police officers present when your car accident occurred there is most likely a Police report, or California Highway Patrol report that was made concerning the events and details of your accident.

Police reports contain information that Police officers or California Highway Patrol officers observed when investigating your car accident. Police reports are very helpful in the development of your car accident case. In a Police report you can expect to find:
- The time and date when the accident occurred
- The exact location where the accident took place
- The weather conditions at the time of the accident
- The road conditions where the accident took place
- A description of all the vehicles involved in the accident.

- The position of the vehicles when the Police or California Highway Patrol arrived at the scene.
- The damage of the vehicles after the accident.
- The names, contact information and statements of all the parties involved in the accident, and the witlessness who saw the accident take place.
- A summary of all the medical injuries which resulted from the car accident.
- A description of how the accident happened.
- The cause of the accident, in the opinion of the officer.
- The speed the vehicles were going when the accident happened.
