How to Read Your Indiana Auto Accident Report

Information you can trust from an experienced attorney

After a car accident in Indiana, the police accident report, called an Indiana Officer's Standard Crash Report, becomes one of the most important pieces of evidence in your claim. Insurance companies use the information in the report when processing and evaluating claims. And while the report itself is often not admissible in court, if the investigating police officer is called to testify in a deposition or at trial, he or she will likely use the information contained in the report as the basis for that testimony.

That's why it's important to obtain a copy of your report. In Indiana, you can request a copy from the police department directly, or you can buy it online. And that's why you need to understand the information in the report.

We created this guide to help you cut through the confusion. If you have any questions about your crash report or notice a discrepancy, contact us immediately. We can help set the record straight and protect your legal rights.
