Reading Your Accident Report

A Guide to Reading Your Kansas Police Accident Report

When a police officer responds to your auto accident in Kansas, the officer fills out a Motor Vehicle Accident Report, DOT Form No. 850. This 5 page-long document contains a long list of codes to describe different types of car accidents.

You might not pay too much attention to what the police officer wrote in your accident report. You probably have more important things to worry about after your accident, especially if you or someone else in your accident was injured.

Decoding what the symbols mean in an accident report can be confusing but it's important to understand the symbols and the accident report. That's because insurance companies carefully review this document when trying to decide how much to compensate you.

Our experienced Kansas car accident lawyers at Bretz Injury Law thoroughly understand these reports. To help you get started, we've created this guide to understanding your Kansas motor vehicle accident report.
