How to Obtain a Crash Report in Tampa following a Car Accident
If you are a party involved in a car accident, you have the right to obtain a copy of the crash report, 911 calls and any related accident photographs taken by the Tampa Police Department, Hillsborough County Sherriff’s Office or Florida Highway Patrol.
The process for obtaining a car accident report depends on which agency investigated the crash. Most accident reports can be obtained online at www.buycrash.com. Depending on the date of the car accident, agencies generally try to submit police crash reports within seven to ten business days from the date of the accident. Tampa crash reports prepared by the Hillsborough County Sherriff’s Office and FHP can be purchased at buycrash.com.
If the Tampa Police Department investigated the crash, a copy of the report can be obtained at One Police Center, 411 N Franklin St, Tampa Florida, 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday – Friday. Charges for reports are 15 cents for single sided pages. – See more at: http://www.tampagov.net/police/programs/records-section-services#sthash.nxvH9NvN.dpuf
