How to Obtain a Police Report after a Car Accident

When you’ve been involved in a serious car accident, you or someone else may have notified the police about the accident. The officers who responded to the scene will have completed a police accident report. Obtaining a police report after a car accident is extremely important. A police accident report will include details about the officer’s investigation of the crash, note whether any citations were issued or any arrests were made, and sometimes may provide the officer’s opinion about who was at fault for the accident. As a result, police accident reports often serve as a key piece of evidence in car accident claims.

You can request a copy of the police accident report following the crash, but you may not be familiar with the process of obtaining a copy or may have concerns about contacting the police to request a copy of the police accident report.

They made the whole process really easy. They updated me with what was going on with my car insurance, they helped me out with where to go to get a car rental. They knew my case, they knew who I was, and they could really just guide me toward the right direction.

When I came over here, they treated me like family. I really appreciate it. I referred them to a couple of friends. I explained to my friends and family how the office treated me so good.
