Winston-Salem Police Accident Reports
How to obtain a Winston-Salem Crash Report online, in person, or by mail (see below).
If you need help after a serious car, motorcycle, or other vehicular accident, call Auger & Auger, where we’ve helped people for two decades in the Winston-Salem area. For assistance with obtaining a Winston-Salem report, please call our office at (336) 346-1963. 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.
These Winston-Salem crash reports are crucial in helping you determine what happened after your accident. They can contain diagrams detailing the mechanism of your crash, any witnesses’ names present at the scene and their contact information, and vital responding officer comments regarding the wreck.
How is Fault Determined? By a Code.
When a Winston-Salem police officer responds to the scene of an accident, their crash reports often contain codes that are small, yet have a profound effect on what happened with the accident. These codes are small, easy-to-miss, and can be hard to interpret. Upon calling our office, we can help you find these codes, interpret them for you, and usually let you know who the police officer feels is at fault for the accident. Insurance carriers’ adjusters use these same codes to ascertain liability on the parties.
