At Roberts & Harris PC, our Raleigh car accident attorneys know that one of many pieces of evidence relevant to a successful North Carolina traffic collision and injury claim is the law enforcement crash report.
When a vehicle crash occurs, calling the police can be a critical step in proving fault for the collision. Police are trained to obtain information about the drivers, other passengers, and witnesses, and document evidence that can help our Raleigh personal injury lawyers expand our investigation, collect additional supporting evidence, and help pursue recovering compensation for your injuries.
The traffic crashes investigated by all North Carolina law enforcement agencies are forwarded to the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles in the form of crash reports.
Here is how you can obtain a copy of your report in person, by phone, or by mail.
