How To Get A Car Accident Report In Fresno
If you have an attorney working for you he or she will obtain your accident report for you. If your insurance company is involved they may also take care of getting the report.
If you need to get the report yourself, you can do so by going to the Fresno Police Department website. Once there you will click on the “order collision report” drop-down menu. You will then fill out your request on the BuyCrash site that assists the police department in record keeping. It helps if you have the report number from the crash, the date of the crash, and the street names from where it happened.
There will be a $12 convenience fee for the online request.
The reports were free to anyone visiting the public records in person, but as of 2020 those public counters have been closed and that policy has continued in 2021. It’s important to check and see if this policy is still in effect if you feel you need to visit in person. If you require emergency help with your accident report call (559) 621-2534.
Do I need a lawyer?
For accidents involving property damage or minor injuries, you may not need an attorney. However, if you were seriously injured, an experienced Fresno Car Accident Lawyer can often find ways to greatly increase the amount of compensation you get and alert you when an insurance company isn’t treating you fairly. You didn’t cause your accident and you should never be held responsible for your medical bills and other costs of recovery.
