If you are involved in an accident, you may find yourself trying to decipher the contents of an accident report a few days later, or as they are now called, a “Florida Traffic Crash Report.”
If you feel confused reading the report, don’t feel alone. They were designed for the purpose of inputting data so that statistics can be accumulated and hopefully help analysts understand what’s going on out there on our roads and highways.
You may receive a “long-form” or a “short-form” report, or you may be given an “exchange of driver information” form, but they all have one thing in common: they’re hard to figure out.
It would be impractical for us to explain the entire report and what each section means, so we’re going to ask you to give us a call if you get a Florida Traffic Crash Report after being involved in an accident, and we’ll help you out. We can’t even begin to count all the crash reports we have reviewed over the years, but it is a lot.
These reports are actually very serious documents and should be thoroughly reviewed and analyzed because they may contain information that is crucial to your accident, and if you are injured, to your potential case for compensation.
