How to Obtain a Copy of Your Car Accident Report in Georgia


September 18, 2020

If you were involved in a car accident in Georgia, you will want to obtain a copy of your accident report. This is the official report about the accident, as documented by law enforcement officers who responded to the scene. Below is some information about how to receive a copy of this report.

The first step in obtaining your accident report is to identify the responding law enforcement agency. This might be difficult because of confusion after an injury-causing accident and the fact that many agencies often respond to one scene. If you do not remember who was leading the investigation at the scene, think about where the accident occurred and if you received any documentation from the police to guide you.

If your accident happened inside an incorporated city in Georgia, you likely want to start by contacting the police department in that city. If it occurred outside of city limits, you should contact the sheriff’s office in the county where the accident occurred. 

In many accidents in Georgia, particularly in county accidents, Georgia State Patrol will respond to the scene. If you do not have luck with a police department or sheriff’s office, reach out to the Georgia State Patrol Post in the county where the crash occurred. 

Once you find the appropriate law enforcement agency, request a copy of the police report. Occasionally, reports are available online. If not, the agency will provide instructions for obtaining the report.
