Can I request a copy of my accident report?

After a car collision on California roads, you may be too shaken to think of practical matters - or you may keep your head enough to call the police, exchange insurance information with the other driver and do everything you can to document the accident. Yet one critical document often required by insurance companies is a copy of the accident report. Can you request a copy of your accident report from the police?

Can I report potentially unsafe drivers?

Maybe your neighbor consistently backs into the trash cans as they reverse out of the drive every morning. Maybe your favorite aunt hunches nose to the steering wheel, peering through her glasses, weaving across the road as she drives you to your communal Sunday flea market pickings. Maybe your own spouse is losing the concentration required to safely drive, making you worry for their safety and the safety of those on California streets around them. No matter the person, you are concerned that an unsafe driver poses a danger to themselves and others, yet in the absence of convincing them to voluntarily abdicate their driving privileges...what can you do?

Are head-on crashes more common on rural roads?

Does CA have a statute of limitations on personal injury claims?

After a motor vehicle accident, you may be focused on immediate injuries and damages. Yet days, weeks, months or even years later you find pain creeping in, such as spinal issues or brain injury issues. A medical examination by a California doctor determines that this was damage from the motor vehicle accident that took longer to manifest over time. You are now facing an injury that could significantly impact your quality of life. But is it too late for you to make a personal injury claim for your trauma?

What do you do if you hit a parked vehicle or structure?

You may already know what to do if you get into a collision with another California driver. Remain at the scene, call the police, document the accident with photographs and exchange insurance and contact information with the other driver. But what should you do if you collide with a parked vehicle, building or other structure?
