Understanding the Accident Report Privilege Rule of Law
After a car accident has taken place, the police must rely mainly on witness statements, as they rarely see the collision as it happens. Unfortunately, witnesses may be biased or miss crucial details of the accident. It is easy to see how this process could lead to unfair accusations of fault.
In Florida, there is a rule of law called the accident report privilege. This regulation states that anything you say to a police officer during the course of the car accident investigation cannot be used against you in a traffic hearing. Regardless, you should still refrain from pleading guilty, even if you feel that you were primarily to blame for the car accident.
Make the Right Steps After a Traffic Accident
You might be wondering what you need to do after being in a car accident. The answers may not be immediately clear but so long as you remember these useful steps, you should be able to get through the experience:
- Do not admit fault
- Collect evidence – photographs and statement
- Keep copies of all records – police or medical
- Call a Miami traffic accident attorney
The final step in the process is arguably the most important. Tensions can run high after a traffic accident and the complexity of the laws surrounding them do not make things easier. Without a professional at your side, you might be left wondering what to do or, worse yet, you could be left responsible for the bills and costs related to the collision.
