There are three other ways to get your report. You can fill out an online TxDOT request form, mail one in, or contact the local police where the accident happened. Crash reports by Texas Highway Patrol can be accessed this way, too.
Certain local Texas law enforcement agencies provide online access to crash reports through BuyCrash.com. Those that use the service include Houston, Laredo, and the Harris County Constable’s Office (Precincts 1-8).
Crash reports often determine fault and therefore, greatly affect your compensation. Because Texas uses a modified comparative negligence system, the more blame you are assigned for an accident, the less money you can recover. You need a copy of your crash report to check it for accuracy and to support your claim for injury compensation.
If you hire a Texas car accident attorney, they can handle getting the report for you.
