I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I have attempted to help a client in the past get a police report corrected so I have some experience in this area. What I have learned is that the police are not obligated to make any changes to their police report unless they believe that there is a reason to do so. If you've been refused already, there is unfortunately not anything that you could do in this situation. To give you some perspective, I contacted a division Commander with the California Highway Patrol to help get an accident report corrected for one of my clients and before I did that I researched the law and I researched the chances for a report to be corrected legally, but I was unable to find any support. The commander also told me that they weren't going to be making any changes in that my arguments, which were considerable, were not persuasive. I'm very sorry I wish I had some different information for you. Please don't shoot the messenger, but unfortunately the report won't be changed unless the police agree to do so. One thing you could do is continue to request that it be changed or maybe you could find additional evidence that you believe would be helpful. Basically, do your best to try to give to me good reason to make the change. Also, although I provided an initial answer, it’s important that you are 100% satisfied. If you feel I have done so, please rate me 5 stars and let me know if you have any follow up questions. As a side note, you can also click here in the future to request me individually.
