Officer-Involved Accident And Injury
It is often a shock for an ordinary person going about his or her business in traffic to be involved in a crash with the other driver being a law enforcement officer. Who would expect to be struck in traffic by a police car, highway patrol car, border patrol car or sheriff’s vehicle? How do you go about pursuing compensation when the other driver is employed by a government body?
In fact, motor vehicle accidents involving a police officer as one of the drivers can present special challenges for the injured who seek compensation afterward. You may wonder whether you can easily get a completely objective report on how the accident happened. Liability and insurance issues may be complex.
