CALLING THE SAN DIEGO POLICE OR CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL (CHP) AFTER A VEHICLE ACCIDENT: Should I call the San Diego Police Department after my San Diego County Car or Motorcycle Accident?

Yes!  If the San Diego County car or motorcycle accident is serious enough to cause injury, the police should be called immediately and without hesitation.  The police officer will investigate the cause of the accident, take witness statements, and record the personal information of the other driver - this will put together into a written police report which can come in later as evidence in your San Diego personal injury case.  The police officer, is considered "an officer of the court" and is required by law to file a report containing the details of the car accident.
