It’s important to be cooperative with the police officers as they will be writing the accident report. Make sure your are providing accurate information and that you are able to communicate what has happened. If you genuinely don’t know what happened, it’s okay to say that as well and don’t let them put words in your mouth. It can be hard to remember all of the details when you’re hurt, but it’s just a matter of doing what you can to communicate that information to them.
For example, if the officer witnessed the damage and described it, if the officer got a statement from you or from your driver, those are all first hand accounts by the officer. However, the police officer is not allowed to then conclude who caused the accident. The only exception to that are people who are certified as accident reconstructionists, but that’s a fairly unusual occurrence, and that only happens in accidents involving significant injury or death.
If the police draw conclusions at the scene, is it admissible in court?
Police draw conclusions all of the time, but those conclusions are not admissible.
