The information in your accident report can help your claim for financial compensation, so you will definitely want to get a copy. There are several ways to do this. You can contact the law enforcement agency that responded to your crash. You can order a copy from the California Highway Patrol website. Or you can use the form on this page.
A California car accident attorney can also help you get a copy of the accident and review it with you. An attorney can then discuss your legal options for recovering compensation.
