When you get into an accident that causes you harm, we know that your first priority needs to be making sure all medical emergencies are handled. In the aftermath of a crash, especially one that was caused by someone else’s negligence, there will be many things that happen at once.

What Can Happen

For the latest reporting year in California, there were many traffic incidents. Consider the following statistics.

Hundreds of thousands of vehicle accident injuries, over 12,000 classified as serious.

  • Over 14,000 motorcyclists injured.
  • Over 14,000 pedestrians injured.
  • Nearly 12,000 bicyclist injuries.

In and around San Diego, we see our fair share of traffic-related injuries. These are often severe and leave people unable to work or live their lives the way they used to.

Steps To Filing And Obtaining A Report

We know that these steps are not always able to be followed in this exact order, especially if you are dealing with a serious injury. However, they are important.

  • Document the scene of the accident. Use your phone to get photographs or video. You can record witness statements.
  • Get insurance information from all parties involved.
  • Make sure the police come and fill out an incident report.
  • Keep copies of all medical records related to the incident.
  • Obtain a copy of the police report.

You may wonder if it is possible to file an accident report with police online after an incident.

No, you cannot. That is why it is so important to make sure police get to the scene of the crash to document everything that has happened.

You can, however, obtain a copy of your report online. There is a fee of $10, but you can access the system 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Remember, reports of the accident are going to be used by all parties, including the insurance companies.

An attorney can guide you through this process.
