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 chaos and tension that encompass a typical accident scene may also affect the collation of evidence and consequently the final police report.

Just because an individual is careless or reckless at driving doesn’t automatically mean they are at fault in the event of a collision. A car crash can be caused by a number [...]
