Were you involved in a car accident in the state of Maryland? If so, you know how difficult and frustrating the recovery process can be. One of the best ways for you to alleviate the stress associated with the days and weeks after a car accident is to recover a copy of your official Maryland accident report.
Even if you’ve worked with an official Maryland accident report in the past, there are a few things you should keep in mind as you navigate the layout of the document. The report is a one-page document, split into five sections.
The first section of the report includes all of the most general information about the accident, including:
● Investigating agency’s information
● Time, date, and location of the accident
● Any injuries or fatalities
● Any property damage
The second section contains a diagram where the reporting officer will visually display the events of the accident. Also included in this section is the written narrative where the officer will write down the events of the accident.
The third section is where the reporting officer will note all of the vehicle information, including:
● Names of the drivers
● Drivers’ license numbers
● Vehicle identification number
● Insurance information for all drivers involved
● Make, model, color, and year of the involved vehicles
