How to Get and Read a Utah Accident Police Report
Our law firm represents people who have been injured from someone else’s negligence. The majority of our clients have been injured in car accidents throughout the State of Utah. The first step in investigating your case is to get the police traffic accident report.
After a crash, the police officer on scene will provide you with a Driver’s Exchange Form. This document lists each driver’s contact and car insurance information, but this is not the officer’s full accident police report. You need to get the full police report.
How Can I Get a Car Accident Report from the Police?
At Christensen & Hymas we will request the police report for you, or you can find the police department’s phone number and your case number in the Driver’s Exchange Form and request the report – it typically costs $10.
What’s Inside a Utah Accident Report?
- Name, address, age, and phone numbers for all parties and passengers
- The parties car insurance information
- Witnesses name and phone number
- Police officer’s diagram and explanation of how the accident occurred
- Any injuries noted at the scene
- Citations that were issued by the police officer
What Do the Numbers Mean On the Side of the Police Report?
When you receive a complete accident police report, you will notice that there are numbers and boxes on the left and right margins of the page. These boxes contain valuable information about your accident, but you will need a “key” or “legend” to interpret the meaning of these numbers.
