A: Yes. Generally speaking, police officers are typically viewed as neutral parties. What he or she writes up in the report is very important to your accident claim.
However, if your report has information that you believe is inaccurate, don’t panic. An experienced Mesa accident attorney may be able to help you get things resolved. For example, if the report states that you were at fault, and you weren’t, an expert in accident reconstruction can show that the blame lies elsewhere.
Also, even if the police officer didn’t specifically mention that you were hurt in the crash, it doesn’t mean that you will lose your case. The opinions of doctors are generally taken into consideration.
