Understanding Your Kentucky Car Accident Report
Learn more about the evidence that will play a key role in your injury claim
When car accidents happen in Kentucky, the investigating police officer fills out an accident report, called the Kentucky Uniform Police Traffic Collision Report. The crash report will become a critical piece of evidence in your claim for damages. The insurance company will use the report to evaluate claims and assign fault for the accident. In addition, if the investigating police officer is later called to testify in a deposition or at trial – which may be many months or years after the accident itself – then they will most likely read their testimony from the report.
Knowing what’s in your report is important. So is correcting the record if something isn’t right. If you need help obtaining or reading your accident report, or setting the record straight if it’s incorrect, we can help.
