NHP Accident Report Codes

Car accidents and subpoenaing police traffic accident reports (NHP Form 5) are a fact of life until Google debuts a Droid car that will promptly end MVA litigation in its present form and bankrupt more than a few law firms. The reports primarily use codes to rapidly convey information, meaning the reports cannot be interpreted unless you know what all of the codes mean. Fortunately, the guide explaining all those codes is available online. The information in the reports is not always admissible, but the report is typically a good place to start when evaluating a case.
