What is an Accident Report and why should I get a copy of it?

If you have been involved in a car or truck wreck,  the accident report is the most important document you can have.   The accident report is filled out by the officer who investigates your accident,  and in most cases,  it will have all of the information you will need to make a claim,  or file a lawsuit.

The accident report will have the exact time and location of the wreck.  It will have the names of all the drivers involved and their driver’s license numbers.   It will also have the names of the owners of all the vehicles involved. 

The accident report will also have the names, addresses and phone numbers of all of the witness who saw the accident and who were interviewed by the investigating officer.

In most instances the accident report will also have a statement about how the wreck happened and who was at fault.

The Holton Law Firm will get a copy of your accident report as part of our initial investigation.
