Police Accident Reporting


A motor vehicle accident is distressing to all involved. Even if the damage to the cars is minor and there are no injuries, you might want to consider filing a police accident report.


  • A police accident report can be helpful in determining how the crash occurred, the damage to the vehicles and which driver was at fault.


  • A police accident report contains information on the drivers, cars, passengers, auto insurance, weather and road conditions, and any traffic law violations committed by the drivers.

Time Frame

  • Call the police immediately so they can respond to the scene of the accident. If you leave the scene, they might not be able to write a report after the fact.


  • A police accident report gives an unbiased account of the crash and includes all the information you need to report the accident to your insurance company.


  • Some states require a report be filed if there are any injuries or for damage more than a certain dollar amount. Leaving the scene of an accident when there is serious injury is a felony in most states.
