How to Get an Accident Report from the Fremont Police Department

If you’ve gotten into an accident on a Fremont street, highway, or interstate, you may need to secure an accident report written up by Fremont Police. This may be a key document to prove you weren’t at fault. It may also help you seek financial compensation from a car insurance company.

To secure your report, you’ll either need to mail in your request or make a request in person at the police station. There are a few other steps involved and a fee you’ll need to pay. Fortunately, this article can walk you through the process of obtaining a copy of your Fremont accident report.

Requesting a Collision Report

The Fremont Police Accident website goes over the actions to take if you want to secure an accident report (also known as a collision report). It’s important to wait at least a full week after your accident to request your collision report. This gives the investigating officer a chance to complete your report and submit it. In some cases, if your accident is under an ongoing investigation, you may have to wait longer.

Before making your request, you’ll need to prove you were involved in the accident and are eligible to seek the report. You’ll print out this online form and fill it out. You’ll be asked to show your driver’s license to prove your identity.

Once the form is complete and you’ve included the fee, you can choose to mail it off or deliver it in person.

Do I Need a Lawyer After a Fremont Traffic Accident?

When your accident only involves a minor injury or only vehicle damage, you probably don’t need the help of an attorney.

But when you’ve suffered a serious injury, like a bone fracture or head trauma, and a careless driver was to blame, you should speak to a Fremont Car Accident Lawyer. When hospital bills are high, insurance adjusters look for ways to shift blame for the accident to you. They’ll also do everything possible to avoid paying for all of your medical expenses.
