How a Police Report Affects Your New Hampshire Car Accident Case

Car accidents in New Hampshire can cause serious injuries. When another person’s negligent or reckless driving causes serious injury or property damage, police will often respond to the scene and make a report. If they do not, New Hampshire law requires those involved in car accidents to report the accident within ten days if the accident caused death, serious bodily injury, or property damage over $1,000.

Reporting an accident to the police does not prevent you from later seeking compensation from anyone who may be responsible for your injuries or damage to your car or other property. In fact, not only is reporting the most serious accidents required by law, but it may also help you prove your case in court if necessary. Police often gather details and investigate serious auto accidents, making a record that can provide valuable information at a later date.

Police reports of accidents also contain information that may help a driver seek compensation from his or her insurance company. For instance, the insurance company may ask for a copy of the accident report or the case number. Also, police often record the insurance information of any party involved in the accident, which an injured driver can use to contact the insurance company of a driver who caused the accident.
