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 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. However, if a Texas Peace Officer responds to the scene, you can get your police report through the Texas Department of Transportation.
