It’s important to obtain your Maine car accident report as soon as possible after your accident. Your car accident report captures the events of the accident, often identifies the responsible party and covers the aftermath of the crash. Plus, the accident report will serve as strong evidence in your claim, especially if you file a lawsuit.
If the police were called to the scene of your accident they wrote a report and there are three ways you can get a copy of that report.
If you’re in a hurry to get your police report, online is probably best. According to Maine.gov, they’ll deliver an e-report to you via email typically within 2 hours. All you need is an email address and a form of payment like a debit or credit card. The cost of the report is $10.00 and all fees are nonrefundable.
Obtain your car accident police report via Maine Crash Reporting Online Search & Ordering Service. Some reports are not available such as those for accidents that occurred before 2003. Local precincts may use this online tool, which you can use as well.
You can contact the Maine State Police Division directly at (207) 624-8944 to request your Maine car accident report by mail if email is not available to you. They can also use fax.
If you’d like to obtain a copy of your Maine accident report in person, contact the precinct or the town in which the accident occurred to speak with an administrator directly about in-person availability.
If you have any questions about requesting your Maine accident report or need a lawyer who can help you establish a stronger claim against the at-fault insurance company, contact Principal Attorney Christiana Mann.
