It typically takes a week or so for the CHP to prepare a traffic collision report. The report when released usually indentifies the party who caused the crash. However, sometimes the police report will be inconclusive as to fault or even be wrong in their findings of fault. It is crucial if you have been injured in a crash by another person’s negligence to have an experienced accident lawyer helping you with your personal injury claim. Good personal accident lawyers investigate the details of your crash and hold those responsible for your injuries accountable.
