Client Testimonials



The BEST LAWYER ANYONE COULD ASK FOR!!! Todd changed our lives! He’s not JUST a lawyer representing us for a case. Todd and his office have become Family. When we entered his office in August of 2022, we entered with such anxiety, uncertainty, and so much stress. Honestly we were very lost. My husband and I felt alone. How could a lawyer who didn’t know us, know our family, know our background represents us, When this could change our lives for the next 5-7years that my husband was facing in Federal jail. By the time our free consultation was over with Todd, we left his office at ease. All our questions were answered and we had a sense of relief.

How Lawyers Investigate Car Accidents with No Police Report

March 26, 2024

Car Accident With No Police Report? Here’s How Lawyers Investigate

You were just in a car accident; it seemed minor at the time, so you didn’t call the cops. But now you’re dealing with injuries, vehicle damage, and the other driver’s insurance company is giving you the runaround. What do you do?Don’t worry – our lawyers have got your back. Even without a police report, there are still ways we can investigate and build a strong case. It’s what we do best at Spodek Law Group.

The Importance of Evidence

Look, when there’s no official police report, it puts you at a disadvantage right from the start. The insurance companies know this – and they’ll try to use it against you. That’s why gathering evidence is crucial.Our investigators get to work right away, because evidence can disappear fast:

  • Surveying the accident scene for skid marks, debris, traffic camera footage – anything that backs up your version of events
  • Locating witnesses and getting their statements while it’s still fresh
  • Examining vehicle damage that could reveal the angle of impact and sequence of events
  • Obtaining any available traffic camera, surveillance, or dashcam videos
  • Checking for prior incidents or complaints about that intersection being dangerous

We leave no stone unturned to recreate an accurate picture of what really happened. Believe me, the insurance companies have teams of lawyers whose job is to poke holes in your story – so we make sure our evidence is rock solid.

Establishing Negligence

Of course, just having an accident isn‘t enough to win a case. We need to prove the other driver was negligent – that they failed to exercise reasonable care.Some examples of negligence we frequently see:

  • Distracted driving (texting, eating, putting on makeup, etc.)
  • Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • Disregarding traffic signals/signs
  • Driving under the influence

Our investigators will look at factors like:

  • statements from impartial witnesses
  • Timing of traffic light cycles
  • Skid marks and point of impact
  • Damage patterns on the vehicles

We’ll get accident reconstruction experts involved if needed. These pros can analyze all the evidence and give an expert opinion on who was at fault.

Dealing With Uninsured/Underinsured Drivers

What if the other driver is uninsured or has inadequate coverage? Don’t worry, we’ve got options:

  • Checking if you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to make a claim with your own insurance
  • Looking for other potentially liable parties like a vehicle owner who negligently lent their car
  • Examining if a third party’s actions contributed to the accident (road defects, missing signs, etc.)

Our lawyers know all the angles to maximize your compensation. We’re not afraid to take on the insurance companies and fight for every penny you deserve.

Documenting Injuries and Damages

A major part of any car accident case is documenting the full extent of your injuries and damages. This includes:

  • All medical bills and records related to accident injuries
  • Repair estimates or total vehicle value
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Future costs like ongoing treatment or disability

We work with respected medical experts to evaluate your injuries. We‘ll make sure everything is carefully calculated and accounted for – no missing a single penny.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Look, trying to handle this yourself is an uphill battle. The insurance companies have armies of lawyers who start off assuming you‘re at fault or exaggerating your damages.As your lawyers, we know how to effectively negotiate with them from a position of strength. We understand how to build an ironclad case piece-by-piece. We‘re not intimidated by their tactics because we’ve seen it all before.Plus, we work on a contingency basis – so you pay no fees until we win your case and put money in your pocket. It‘s a no-risk way to level the playing field against the insurance giants.So if you were in an accident with no police report, don’t delay. The longer you wait, the harder it gets to track down evidence and witnesses. Contact our office for a free consultation, and let us get to work investigating your accident today.

Don’t Take Our Word For It

But you don’t have to just take our word on how thoroughly we investigate cases. Check out these reviews from real clients:“I was hit by a driver who ran a red light, but the police never showed up. I didn’t know what to do until I found Spodek Law Group. Their investigators uncovered video footage that proved I wasn‘t at fault. I‘m so grateful they worked tirelessly to get me the compensation I deserved.” – [Hyperlinked to source]“After my accident, the insurance company tried to pin everything on me since there was no police report. That was until Spodek Law Group got involved. Their investigators tracked down witnesses, analyzed the damage reports, and just totally demolished the other side’s arguments. I couldn’t believe how hard they fought for me.” – [Hyperlinked to source]

We’re Not Afraid of Tough Cases

At Spodek Law Group, we aren‘t scared of a challenge. In fact, we relish taking on complex cases that other firms might shy away from, like:

  • Multi-vehicle pileups with disputed fault
  • Accidents with catastrophic injuries or disfigurement
  • Hit-and-run accidents with little evidence to go on
  • Accidents caused by road defects or construction zones
  • Crashes involving uninsured/underinsured drivers

Our investigators have cracked many tough nuts over the years. We simply out-work and out-prepare the other side through tenacious investigation.For example, we had a case where a driver lost control and struck our client – a pedestrian – causing severe injuries. But the driver claimed it was due to a pothole that the city failed to repair properly.Our team didn‘t just take that excuse at face value. We:

  • Obtained maintenance records showing the city was aware of the pothole
  • Found witnesses who confirmed it had been there for months without being fixed
  • Hired an engineer to inspect the pothole remains and give an expert opinion
  • Deposed city workers about their failure to address known hazards

In the end, we proved the city was largely at fault and secured a multi-million dollar settlement for our client’s life-altering injuries.So whether it’s an accident with no police report or a complex multi-party situation, we have the expertise and resources to investigate thoroughly. No case is too tough for our team.
