If I disagree with an officer’s traffic accident report, what can I do?

Officers are traffic accident report takers only. They assess each accident on a case by case basis. Officers make a determination as to the contributing factors on the accident but they DO NOT determine fault. If you disagree with the final accident report, you should contact the officer to discuss your concerns. The officer has the final say in how the report is written. Who pays for damage and other related costs is a matter which must be determined in civil court and/or between insurance companies. You should contact your insurance agent and/or an attorney.

I have discovered that the insurance information on the accident report is not valid. What can I do?

You may file against the driver for no insurance by going to Municipal Court and completing a complaint form against the other driver. All the information you need is contained in the accident report.
