A: Yes it can. The plaintiff will need to prove how the accident actually occurred and impeach the incident report to demonstrate that it is false and the the plaintiff did not commit a crime. This typically involves calling witnesses to the incident to testify in court and offering other relevant evidence including photographs, videotapes, and other documents.

A: An attorney would want to see more details to advise meaningfully, but the actual facts of any accident or incident report could be subject to closer examination. Good luck
