The information listed in this report can make a big difference in how much money you receive after your accident. Insurance companies carefully review such documents and often base their financial offers on the answers filled out by the investigating police officer.

That's why it's important to review your report carefully and make sure all the information is accurate. But knowing how to read such reports can be confusing. The report often contains many symbols and abbreviations.
