How to Get Your Longmont Accident Report

Unfortunately, car accidents happen when you least expect them. If you suffered injuries in a car accident, you have a right to recover compensation against the at-fault driver.

However, you must prove liability to recover compensation. One way to help prove liability is by obtaining a copy of your Longmont accident report. The attorneys at Sloat, Nicholson & Hoover, PC. can help.

Why Are Longmont Accident Reports Important? 

Longmont accident reports provide valuable information about a car accident as detailed by a police officer. Your personal injury attorney and insurance companies use the information provided in these reports to obtain an unbiased viewpoint regarding a car accident. Information provided in these reports includes the following:

  • The date, time, and location of the car accident; 
  • The road and weather conditions related to the crash;
  • The damage sustained to vehicles involved in the crash; 
  • Information related to the scene of the collision; and
  • Details about injuries sustained by those involved.

Insurance companies and personal injury attorneys use the information in an accident report to support finding fault in a car accident. Although an accident report alone is likely not enough to establish responsibility, combined with other facts, it may support your compensation claim. 

How to Get Longmont Car Accident Reports

The Longmont Police Department provides multiple ways to obtain a copy of your car accident report. Be sure to call ahead to determine if your report is ready. At the scene, the reporting officer gives all involved parties the number of that crash report created at the accident scene.

In-Person 

You may obtain a copy of your accident report in-person by visiting the Longmont Department of Public Safety Office. When you visit the Records Department, be sure to bring a form of personal identification, like your driver’s license.

The Longmont Department of Public Safety office is located at 225 Kimbark Street in Longmont, Colorado. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

Online

You may also obtain a copy of your accident report online through CRASHDOCS. However, you may retrieve these accident reports only if the accident occurred within Longmont city limits. The current fee is approximately $5.25 per report.
