Do You Get a Copy of Your Police Report after an Accident?

How Do You Get a Copy of Your Police Report after an Accident?

Posted on October 20, 2016

If you’ve been in an accident, you may want to get a copy of the official accident report. In Louisiana, accident reports are called “crash reports.” You may need a copy of the crash report for your insurance company, or you may just be curious about what is in the report.

Crash reports have a lot of interesting information in them. They tell who all the drivers and passengers were, whether any tickets were issued, and how the crash took place. They also have a lot of basic information, such as the condition of the pavement and the weather when the accident happened.

It’s pretty easy to get a copy of an accident report these days. In Louisiana, the state police keep their reports online. You can go on the statewide crash report website and view or buy a copy of official state crash reports for every parish in the state.

After you find the report you want, you can preview it before you buy. After you enter your purchase information, you can download it right away to your computer.

There are also companies that are in the business of selling police reports. For example, “” provides police reports for nearly every parish in Louisiana. When you go to their website, you first click on the city or parish where the accident happened, then search for the report you want.

Buycrash is another independent seller of crash reports. To order an accident report on their website, you start by looking for the state, then select the location of the accident.

Of course, you can still get a copy of a crash report the old-fashioned way. Just go to the police station to get a copy. In fact, sometimes, this is the only way to get a copy. If your accident happened in New Orleans, you can get a copy of a crash report at the Records and Identification Division on South Broad Street. They also take email requests.
