After a motor vehicle accident, crash reports can be a critical tool in locating witnesses and in showing which drivers were at fault for the collision. Because of that, if you were involved in a car accident, it is important to report it to the police and get a copy of the crash report as soon as you can. This can help ensure that your car repairs and medical bills are covered by the insurance company down the road.
If a Greensboro Police Department officer arrived at the scene of your accident, they should have provided you with a driver exchange form which will list the name of the drivers, the insurance companies, and the crash report number. Typically, it takes around three to five days for a crash report to be finalized depending on the number of vehicles involved. Once it is ready, you can view and download your crash report from the Greensboro Police Accident Report Search by entering the crash report number, accident date, or a driver’s name.
If an officer from the North Carolina State Highway Patrol arrived at the scene of your accident, you can also access your crash report with a report number, accident date, or driver name on the NC State Highway Patrol website.
To see if your crash report is complete, you can call the North Carolina DMV (NC DMV) at (919) 861-3098. You can also use the NC DMV-349 key to read your Greensboro crash report once you have a copy.
