Does it matter that the police report shows that I was at fault in the car accident, even though I wasnt?

Yes, but all hope is not lost. 

The police report is important in a personal injury claim.  Police officers are considered to be neutral parties in an accident and their job is to report the facts.  With that being said, if the report has a few inaccuracies, it doesn’t mean that you lose the opportunity to pursue compensation for your injuries.

An experienced Santa Monica car accident attorney can help with your claim, by using an expert to reconstruct the accident.  If you truly weren’t at fault for the crash, this reconstruction should show it.

Keep in mind that while the police report is important, it is not the only thing considered in a car accident case.
