How to Get a Police Report for an Accident

When you’re hurt in an accident, evidence that shows you didn’t cause the accident and that shows how the accident occurred are valuable. Details like these can help you prove the at-fault party harmed you and that you’re due compensation. The problem is, you may need evidence you’re not sure how to access. For example, you may be unsure how to get a police report for an accident.

That’s where the car accident lawyers at Conway, Pauley & Johnson P.C. can help you. We have the tools you need for your claim, and we can help you take the right steps after an injury.

Report the Accident on Time

When you’re hurt in a Nebraska car accident, you only have a limited time to file your claim. If someone was injured or killed in the accident, or if the damage exceeds $1,000, you may be required to file a report about the accident. Failing to do so may cause difficulties in getting compensated and avoiding legal trouble.

This report must be filed within ten days of your accident. Once you’ve filled out your report, the police will file it as an official document. All you have to do is fill out the online form at the Driver Crash Reporting website.

Buy Your Report Online

Once your crash is in the system, you’ll have a chance to buy an official copy of the report. Typically, this can be online—you can file your report online and then request a copy of that report through the website. Your lawyer can help you take these steps to get your copy.

But maybe you don’t like the idea of using the internet to get a copy of your police report. In these cases, you have other options. If you’re unable or unwilling to get your report online, your car accident lawyer can assist you by getting the report in person or by getting your report through the mail.

Using Your Police Report in the Courtroom

When you have your own copy of the police report, you can then start thinking about additional details of your claim. Maybe you have plenty of strong evidence against another party, and you’re ready to take your claim to court.

The problem is, you may have a tough time using the information shared in your police report. Some of it can be technical, meaning you may be unsure how to use this evidence.

Your lawyer can help you determine what to do with the info in your police report. If you’re unsure how to use your police report, your car accident attorney has the experience you need for your claim.

Talk to Your Lawyer About Your Accident Report

When you’re hurt in a serious accident, your claim and compensation should reflect the impact of that. The problem is, you may not have the evidence you need against the at-fault party. For that, the missing piece in your claim may be your police report, which your lawyer from Conway, Pauley & Johnson P.C. can help you seek.
