Accident reports are created by the police officer who responds to your crash. Because they are often used as evidence for your insurance claim or court case, it is important to request a copy of your accident report and be sure all the details are accurate.

If you have been involved in an accident and a Southlake Police officer responded, you may request your report in the following ways.
