Q: What happens if a police report is wrong about the facts of your Florida car accident?

A: Often times police reports have misinformation about the accident, or are incorrect about how the accident occur. These police officers and public-safety-officials fill out so many of these, that often times there’s incorrect information. Do not panic. You can try to contact the police department or the officer involved, to have that information corrected. Even if the police officer refuses to correct it, normally police reports, in Florida, are not admissible in evidence. What’s contained in the police report is not made known to the jury or made known to the judge. Do not panic if there is misinformation about how the accident occurred, as that often happens, because the police report will not get into evidence.

    I had the same occur, where the police put the wrong information on the report and it makes it look like I am at fault. What can I do to avoid liability?
