After a car crash is it compulsory to report to the police? The answer is simple, yes. No matter if the collision is small, it is good to report the accident to the police. It will save you from hassle in upcoming case matters. Police reports are a document that is very valuable when you negotiate with the insurance company for settlements, building a strong case of a car accident, or doing an investigation.
What does Law say About Car Accidents?
Filing a car accident in some cases is not just a best practice but also a law. In most states, you must have to report the motor vehicle collision that death, injury, or setting up some person to the law enforcement. Moreover, it is required to file an accident report when property damage occurs.
However, irrespective of whether the accident comes under these conditions, it is essential to file a police report to pursue legal action and get a fair amount of money for your damages. Usually, in trials, police reports cannot be used as admissible evidence.

Maryland Personal Injury Attorney, Jonathan Carroll
, fought for his client at trial after the insurance company told his client that he was at fault for a parking lot accident. In this case, a work van backed out of a parking spot slamming into the side of Carroll’s client. The insurance company claimed that Carroll’s client was driving too fast, but had no evidence to support the claim. Before trial, the insurance company made a low “compromised offer,” but Carroll and his client rejected the offer and insisted on getting as much money as possible for his client at trial.

Maryland Personal Injury Attorney Jonathan Carroll
represented a client at trial who had delayed getting therapy following an accident because she was afraid of doctors. The insurance company lawyer tried to argue that this “gap” in treatment meant that Carroll’s client was not actually hurt in the accident. Carroll argued to the Court that everyone acts differently following an accident that and that the insurance company was trying make up specific “rules” for how every accident victim should behave following an accident. The Court agreed with Carroll and awarded his client most of her medical bills as well as an additional sum for pain and suffering. The Court’s award was several thousand dollars more than the insurance company’s pretrial offer.

Maryland Personal Injury Attorney, Jonathan Carroll, won a hard-fought case for his client who was injured after crashing into a disabled car on a busy highway. The disabled car was left behind by a drunk driver who previously crashed into a guardrail. Carroll argued that even if he was not in his car at the time of the accident, the fact that a drunk driver left his car sitting in the middle of a busy highway was negligence in and of itself. The insurance company for the drunk driver tried to argue that he was not responsible since he was not inside his car when the accident happened. The Court disagreed and sided with Carroll. The Court noted that the drunk driver was not only negligent in causing the accident, but also negligent in not moving his car out of the road. Carroll’s client was awarded all of his medical bills, lost wages, plus more than double that amount in pain and suffering.
