Georgia Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accident Guide: When the police arrive at the scene of the accident, is it OK for me to talk to them?

Published February 12, 2018 by Bruce Millar

Yes. You should fully cooperate with any law enforcement officers called to the scene. The information you provide will help the officer to prepare an accident report.

The incident report may be very important as evidence in the case. In particular, it will contain the officer’s assessment of “contributing factors” in the crash and the officer’s determination of who is to blame for the accident. While certain aspects of the report can be corrected and challenged, the report will nonetheless serve as a building block as a foundation in your case.

You can request a copy of the report from the police station or by going to, the online service used by the Georgia Department of Transportation.
