I was in auto accident in Texas on 6/6/12. I was not able

This answer was rated:

I was in auto accident in Texas on 6/6/12. I was not able to get a copy of the accident report until 6/22/12. The report clearly has serious errors on it. Can I amend the report and is there a period of time in which to do this?

I'm an experienced personal injury attorney in Texas. Unfortunately, the accident report is not something that you can force a correction on. However, it may cause you serious problems in any insurance claim or lawsuit that results from the accident.

You can request that the officer consider changing the report because of errors in the report, but she/he does not have to change the report. The easiest way to go about doing this is to contact the officer (their name should be listed on the report) and ask them if they would mind changing it and that there are some serious errors on it that are going to cause you issues. It is the officer's discretion at that point to do it or not. You will likely have to be persistent in getting the reporting officer to take your call.

Please let me know if you need further information.
