Seeing a copy of the California accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
