Why You Need a Police ReportA police report is a piece of evidence in a personal injury case. It can be used as evidence in court, and it may also be used to obtain medical records. If you were involved in an accident and need a Chicago Police Report, there are a few things you should know:
- You must have insurance coverage for your claim. Your insurance company will require that any injuries or damage done to another vehicle be covered by an accident report from the Chicago Police Department (CPD). If you don’t have enough money to pay for damages or want to ensure your claim gets paid before filing anything with CPD, contacting your insurer first is good advice!
- You should submit all information about this incident immediately after the accident—even if it’s just over social media or text messaging!
