If you have been involved in a car wreck of some type in Louisville or your vehicle was damaged, chances are at some point you will need a copy of your car accident report which was filed with Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD). After the crash, LMPD will supply you with a collision report number. If you are not in Louisville Metro, you will get a collision report number from the county police that are at the accident scene. This number allows you to later retrieve the accident report.
If serious injuries occurred during this accident it is important to speak to a Louisville personal injury lawyer who works with car accidents. When you are injured in an accident and it isn’t your fault, call us for a free consultation.

How to get a car accident report in Louisville Kentucky:
To obtain your accident report you will need your accident report number, report date, driver’s or vehicle owner’s last name and a valid form of identification. Accident reports may be purchased online for $10 or picked up in person at LMPD Records Division, 701 West Ormsby Avenue, Suite 001, Louisville, KY 40203. Reports are available to you, your attorney representing you and your insurance company.
If an accident resulted in a very serious injury or a death, the report may take longer to be prepared as Louisville Metro will be spending more time investigating the collision. Your car accident report will show the date and time of the collision, insurance information and who they think could have been at fault.
It is important to note here that drivers who were partially at fault may still be able to be compensated for their injuries if another party was negligent as well. Proving negligence can be very difficult, so contact us with any questions which you may have.
