In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.Ask a similar question
Yes. You must go to the police station and file a counter report (a report made at the counter). You may be able have the traffic department or watch commander determine what Officer handled you matter. If 911 was called there will be a call log identifying the Officer. Put that info in the counter report and ask the traffic supervisor if the Officer can add a narrative supplement to your counter report.Ask a similar question
Unfortunately, no. Police reports take time to prepare. If you told the officers that no one was hurt and there wasn't significant property damage, they may not even prepare a report. You can request one now but, that takes time as well. This amount of time varies depending upon the location of the accident and the agency (e.g. for a freeway accident, CHP can usually do a report within 10 days or so but, for accidents on surface streets in the City of Los Angeles, LAPD may take months for a full report). If you were injured, you should seek PROMPT medical attention and consult and retain an attorney to look at the facts of the case and argue your side regarding liability. Witness statements are also very helpful in this type of scenario.
Nothing in this communication should be construed as creating an attorney client relationship. This is for informational purposes only. Attorney will take no action on your behalf unless and until a written retainer agreement is signed. There are strict time deadlines on filing claims and, as such, you are advised to consult with and retain an attorney immediately to file such claims timely or you will lose any right to recovery. Any testimonials or endorsements should not be construed as a guarantee, warranty or prediction of the outcome of your case.Ask a similar question
The time it takes to get a traffic collision report depends on which police department responded. If your accident is in Los Angeles, and it is the LAPD, you can expect to wait 2 to 4 months to get a report (and you cannot go to a desk and pick it up.) If it is California Highway Patrol, it should be ready in about 2 weeks. And I believe you can pick it up from the correct station. By the way, even lawyers have a hard time getting a police report from the LAPD faster.
If you know the dept. and it is not LAPD, call and see how long it will take.Ask a similar question
