Car accidents, even minor ones, can be very unnerving. When caught up in one, it's very hard to be calm, even if you didn't sustain any serious injuries. The damages to your vehicle, and the thoughts of all the processes you will have to go through to obtain compensation, can drive you crazy. And that's not even the worst of it….. The chaos and tension that encompass a typical accident scene may also affect the collation of evidence and consequently the final police report. Really, you can't expect the cops to get everything right when the involved parties can't agree who is at fault and some of the witnesses are too shook to give accurate attestations. And while an inconsistent, or incomplete police report won't really matter in court, insurance companies may use [...]
