I had a domestic dispute and then a car accident in which both, I was determined to be the victim after I was attacked and car hit immediately by after by the aggressor (by accident.) The police only created an incident report. The police did not create an accident report and they did not mention that there was a car collision at all. So I am confused as to why the insurance company is telling me that they are waiting on the incident report (which only refers to domestic issue) to come back and does not refer to the car wreck or damaged to cars during collision all.
Can they get access to the incident report or are they just buying time? They are attempting to determined if the aggressor hit my car on purpose and if they do feel they did they will determine that it is not their responsibility to pay.
You should contact the police and determine why they did not create an accident report if it was an accident. Not sure if this is possible but you can find out who the responding officers were at the scene and discuss it with them or get a reason possible in writing as to why there was no report, or to get them to create one. Take photos of the damaged vehicle. If the wreck is not mentioned in the criminal charge as vehicular assault or assault maybe the officers did not think that it was intentional part of the domestic violence incident. You should consider also calling an attorney.
