How to Get Your Gwinnett Accident Report

If you have been involved in a Gwinnett County accident you are probably wondering how do I get my police report? The first thing that is important is the police officer probably gave you a business card that has a number written on it. That number is your case number or your accident report number. You want to save that because it is important when getting your report. There is two ways in getting your Gwinnett accident report.  

The first way is you can show up to the police station. If you want to show up to the police station it tends to be cheaper. You want to go to the police station where the accident occurred. If you’re accident happens in Gwinnett County, then you will need to go to the Gwinnett County records office, 770 Hi Hope Rd, Lawrenceville, GA 30043. When you show up make sure to have that accident report number and your I.D. to get  copy of your report. If the police that Responded to your accident is under city jurisdiction and not county, then you need to go to that city’s police office. After you show the department your I.D. and give them the report number, and then they will print it out for you. Many police departments do not take a personal check, so you will need to bring cash or a credit card to pay.

The second way to get your report is you can get it online. The report is generally available online takes about five business days. Getting the report online tends to cost a couple dollars more, but you can download the police report as soon as it is ready. You can do this on a website called http://buycrash.lexisnexisrisk.com. 

To get your report you are going to need some information. The first thing you are going to need is the state where the accident happened. The second thing you’re going to need is the jurisdiction. The jurisdiction is just a fancy word for the police department. The third thing you will need is the last name of one of the partiers involved. Then the last thing you will need is the accident report number, vin number, or driver’s license number. The easiest way to get the last information is to use the number that was on that card that was given to you by the police officer, but If you lose that card there are other options. The Buycrash report still takes about five days to be available online, but if for some reason if five days pass and you still can’t find your report call your local police station and see why the report, is not available. Unfortunately, sometimes, you will still have to go in person to pick up the report if Buycrash isn’t working.
