Asheville Police Accident Reports
For obtaining a report online, in person, or by mail
Auger & Auger has helped numerous victims injured by car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle in the Asheville area. If you’d like Auger & Auger to help you obtain a copy of your accident report, please call (828) 222-7649. Reports are only provided to individuals directly involved in an accident. We do not provide reports to third parties such as attorneys, or insurance carriers.
Accident reports contain important information you may need after you experience an accident. A crash report will give you an overall picture of what exactly happened, what each driver communicated to the authorities, estimated damage to your vehicle, and important contact information for any witnesses who saw what happened.
The Police Officer’s Codes Determining Fault
Equally important to contact information and witness statements are easy-to-miss codes that run vertically along the side of the report. These codes are used by Asheville Police Department to determine which party is at fault for the accident.
Oftentimes, the insurance carriers look at these codes first to make a liability determination. We can help you locate this information when you call or visit our office. We can also provide a free consultation and review your report with you, and give you advice that will aid in pursuing your claim.
Finding the Report Online
The Asheville Police Department has an online tool which retrieves your report. The criteria you would need to find this report include the following (the more information the better):
- First/Last Name
- Date of the accident
- Accident number (usually given to you at the scene by a responding officer)
- Street name of the location of the accident
- Insurance policy number
Incident reports are available at the Records Unit in the lobby of Asheville Police Headquarters, located at 100 Court Plaza, Asheville, NC 28801.
If for some reason you cannot locate your accident report online, you can call the Records Unit at (828) 222-7649. It would help to have any of the information listed above available upon calling to guarantee a speedy search.
