A dangerous rear-end collision on Classen Boulevard or a side-swipe on Western Avenue can leave you with a smashed bumper and perhaps in some pain. If another driver is responsible for your damage and injuries, it’s critical that you prove your innocence so you don’t have to pay for your car repairs or even a hospital stay.
A collision report provided by an investigating officer from the Oklahoma City Police Department (OKCPD) may be your best bet for proving to a car insurance company that they owe you major compensation. At some point, you may need to know how to secure an Oklahoma City police accident report.
Requesting a Police Collision Report from The Oklahoma City Police Department
If the Oklahoma City Police investigated your crash, the first thing you should know is that the police department does not fax or email crash reports out.
To secure your report you’ll need to complete these steps:
- Fill out an OPCD Records Request Form. Have information about your accident ready, including the case number.
- You’ll have to upload a signed affidavit with your form proving you are eligible to receive the report. You can find that form here.
- When completed, submit your report online.
- Documents will be mailed to you at the address you provide.
Keep in mind that it’s best to wait at least a week after your accident to allow time for the collision report to be completed.
In some cases, your car insurance provider will be requesting this accident report for you. If you have hired Ylla | Gosney Attorneys at Law to represent your car accident case, you don’t have to worry about this process. Your lawyer will secure this report and all other evidence for you.
What Does My Accident Report Cost?
The Oklahoma City Police Department charges 25 cents per page for your document. A $4.00 handling fee may also be included for the expense of mailing your report.
