What Information is in a Collision Report?

Crash reports are legal documents that are filled out by police officers at the scene of an accident.

These documents contain basic information such as:

  • Time of accident
  • Location of accident
  • Date of occurrence
  • Accident type, such as hit-and-run-collision, two-vehicle crash, highway crash, etc.
  • Any major injuries noted
  • The names, phone numbers, and mailing address of all parties involved,
  • Road and weather conditions
  • Driver’s license numbers
  • Insurance information
  • Vehicle plate numbers
  • Any citations issued for the violation of traffic laws
  • Any arrests made
  • Cause of accident, such as reckless driver, intoxicated driver, failure to yield, etc.

Crash reports also contain the police officer’s accident investigation findings which will detail how and why the accident occurred and which driver the police officer believed was responsible.

Who Can Get an Unredacted Traffic Report?

Eligible persons who can obtain a copy of an unredacted Madera County crash report include all parties involved in the collision, vehicle owners, insurance companies, injury lawyers, the parent or legal guardian of a minor, and law enforcement agencies.

When Will My Report Be Available?

After filing accident reports, the reports must be reviewed and approved before you can request them. Accidents involving major incidents will take longer to process.
If you were involved in a simple accident, such as a two-vehicle crash, your report may be available in five to seven business days. If you were involved in a fatal crash, the collision involved a crime or significant bodily injury, the report may be unavailable for several weeks or months.

Why Do I Need to Get a Copy of My Collision Police Report?

If you were involved in an auto accident that was not your fault, you deserve compensation for your injuries, vehicle damage, lost wages, and other losses. Unfortunately, it’s your responsibility to prove the other driver was negligent. After an accident, you must obtain evidence such as a collision report, which includes valuable information that can help strengthen your claim.

This important information includes the reporting police officer’s accident investigation findings which detail how and why the accident occurred and which driver the officer believed was responsible, a description of the injuries you sustained in the crash, a description of vehicle damage, witness and driver statements, a diagram of the crash scene, any citations issued, and more.

Your personal injury attorney will use the information in a crash report when negotiating with the other motorist’s insurance company to fight for the fair compensation you deserve for your losses.
