Charlotte Police Accident Reports
For obtaining a report online, in person, or by mail (see below).
Call our office for a free copy of your accident report (704) 364-3361. 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. Auger & Auger Accident and Injury Lawyers is one of the premier law firms in the Charlotte metro area handling car, truck, and motorcycle accident claims.
If you are involved in a car accident, one of the first things you will want to see is the police accident report. Not only will the report have contact information for the adverse driver’s insurance carrier, but it will have contact information for the witnesses, estimated damage to the vehicles, and a diagram and statements by each operator.
The Police Officer’s Codes Determining Fault
What you will not see when first looking at the report are the discrete codes that the investigating officer puts on the report where they determine the fault of each driver. This is the first thing that the insurance carrier looks at when making a liability determination. We can help you locate this information on the report when you call our office.
We have an account with the City of Charlotte and the NC State Highway Patrol for easy access to our client’s motor vehicle accident reports. We will also provide a free consultation and give you advice that you will need in pursuing the claim.
