Understanding the Georgia Motor Vehicle Accident Report (Pt. 4)

Police officers are only human, and humans make mistakes.  Sometimes a police officer preparing a Georgia Uniform Motor Vehicle Accident Report will include information in the report that is not correct.  While this may seem like a minor detail in the early days of an accident claim, this information becomes part of the permanent record of the facts in the case.  Many times these errors will remain in the official report through the time when that report is used in a personal injury trial.

If there is any significant error in the report for an accident in which you were involved, you need to contact the reporting officer immediately.  In fact, doing so in writing (via fax or email) is the best practice so that there is a record of your request for a change.  Otherwise, a jury at trial could conclude that you did not have any problem with the facts when you received the report.
