Accident Report

What is an Accident Report?

An Accident Report (or Incident Report) is an official record that provides a detailed and accurate account of an event, such as an accident, injury, or near miss, that occurred in a specific location, usually within an organization or workplace. They are created on-site by an authority figure such as a police officer or a hospital staff member.

Above individual offices or hospitals, agencies like the National Transportation Safety Board produce and file accident reports. Most reports focus on a single accident. These reports contain information such as details of the specified accident, analysis of factual data, conclusions and probable cause of the accident, and in some cases, related safety recommendations.

Accident reports often serve as evidence in legal disputes. They can establish facts and assist in determining liability in negligence cases or assessing claims and determining compensation for damages or injuries in insurance claims. Police reports specifically are considered public records and can typically be requested for access by any individual, often through contact with local law enforcement.

How to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit

Will I Need to File a Truck Accident Lawsuit?

Truck Accident Lawyer Dan Munley examines the wreckage of a truck accidentEvery time we get in our car, whether we’re going to work, to pick up the kids, to dinner, or anything in between, we expect to arrive safely at our destination. Most of the time, this is exactly what happens. But the devastating truth is that car accidents are a very real risk any time you’re on the road.

While all accidents are terrifying, accidents involving trucks and other commercial motor vehicles are particularly dangerous. A truck accident is likely to cause far more damage and more serious injuries than most other kinds of motor vehicle accidents, given the size and weight of something like a semi-truck. It’s not uncommon for victims to endure something as serious as a traumatic brain injury.

Accidents involving large trucks can be life-changing events for all those involved, […]

What to Do If a Truck Leaves the Scene of a Crash?

What Can You Do if a Truck Driver Leaves the Scene of an Accident?

scranton big rig accident lawyer munley law injury attorneysBecoming a victim of a hit and run crash with a truck is a traumatic experience. Truck crashes are increasing in frequency and truck drivers who are “at fault” are more often guilty of leaving the scene of an accident than in the past.

Leaving the scene of an accident isn’t a wise decision. It is a crime that normally results in a more serious penalty than those normally imposed for causing an accident. A driver who flees an accident scene may lose his or her license and/or receive a prison sentence.

Yet many drivers, in the heat of the moment, flee for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they may leave an accident site unintentionally, unaware they caused damage or injury.

Victims of hit-and-run truck accidents often suffer serious, […]
