Following a car accident, a variety of things will occur. Importantly, first responders will arrive to assess your injuries, and the police will arrive to assess the accident.

According to Texas law, any law enforcement officer that investigates a car accident that results in either injury or death or damage of property of over $1,000 needs to submit a written police accident report to TxDOT no later than 10 days following the date of the accident. If your car accident was responded to by a Baytown Police Officer, the responding officer likely filled out a Baytown Car Accident Report.

If a police officer responds to the scene of the accident, you are eligible for getting a police report from the police department, online, and from Sutliff & Stout Law Firm. A car accident report can be a useful tool in whatever steps you may wish to pursue following an accident.

*This service is available to anyone involved in a collision that needs help getting their crash report. This service is not available to other law firms or insurance companies.

Form

Forms for an accident are usually filled out if the accident was not severe enough to warrant a car accident report at the scene by a police officer. These accidents either don’t require an officer at the scene or damages don’t exceed over $1000 or more. To file a form, you can choose to fill out a Blue Form for your records.

A copy of your Baytown Police Accident Report can be ordered through the Baytown Police Department by filling out the Baytown Police Department Crash Report Request form.

The form should include the following information:

  • date and time of the accident
  • the name of any involved person
  • and the incident number

It is important to provide as much information as you can. The more information you have, the easier it is to locate your accident report.

The completed form can be taken to the Baytown Police Department, which is located at 3200 N. Main Street and the Records Division lobby hours are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
