Adjusters will generally assert that a police report is the all controlling factor in the determination of liability in a motor vehicle accident. However, if your case goes to trial the police report may have a very little impact. However, if you have not filed a lawsuit yet, an action you can take to counteract a police report that you believe has the story wrong is call the responding police officer. It is unlikely that the police officer will change the report, but at least you can his or her side of the story so you know how to refute possible assertions the adjuster will make to diminish your claim or decline your claim.
