A: That is not completely unusual. Sometimes that does happen. As long as the facts are consistent with regard to what happened, you really should be okay. That is the short answer. I have had that happen many times and when the date is clearly referencing the facts of the accident and it is just one day off, it is usually not a problem. You probably would benefit from the services of an attorney though given the fact that something so simple is already an issue.
