Information You Will Need To Get the Car Accident Report

How Do I Get My Car Accident Report

At the scene of the car accident, the investigating officer should have provided you with an incident number/accident report number. This number is all the information that you need to get the crash report. If you do not have this number, you are still able to get the report, but Texas law requires that you have two of the following pieces of information:

  • Date of the car accident
  • Location of the car accident
  • Name of the driver or drivers involved in the car accident

Of course, you will also need to know what police department investigated the accident so that you can request the accident report from the appropriate entity. Depending on the police department that investigated the Texas car accident, you must either mail in or personally deliver a request to obtain the report. There is typically a small charge for the crash report, and reports generally are not available until a week to ten days after the accident. The standard form accident report can be viewed here.
