Police Reports & Car Accidents

"How do I obtain the police report from my car accident?"

If you have been in a car accident and the police came to the scene, you probably received a copy of the accident report. The report should detail the crash, but it is not the official police report. A Georgia car accident generates the police to create a police report within a few days of the crash.

A police report is one of the most important pieces of evidence in any car crash case. Police reports contain all kinds of useful information. If one is created, then it becomes the starting point of the insurance claim investigation. You can obtain the report online or in person depending on the city or county police who reports the accident.

For example, Gwinnett County Police Department now makes it easy to obtain police reports online through www.buycrash.com for a $6 charge. Part of having a car accident lawyer is that he/she can obtain your police report for you and deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. Kalka & Baer LLC has expert auto accident attorneys and has represented clients not only in Gwinnett County but also across the state of Georgia.
