Greenwood Police Accident Reports

When you have had the misfortune of sustaining serious injuries in a traffic accident in Greenwood, South Carolina, there are many things going on simultaneously. Law enforcement will connect all the critical things you need — from the medical attention of first responders to witness statements and traffic control. One crucial piece of evidence the officer will compile is the Greenwood Police Accident Report, which will be filed in 3-5 business days.  

You will definitely want to acquire this report for your records. There will be a narrative, listing parties involved in the accident, as well as a diagram to visually define the point of impact and visible vehicle damages.

As a public service, Auger & Auger Accident and Injury Lawyers has contacted your Police Department for complete instructions on how you can personally access your Greenwood Police Accident Report. If we can help to interpret and answer any questions you may have about your accident or report, please contact us at 864-991-3532 for a free consultation.
