But there is one sure thing you can do if you hope to start to understand what’s next. And that’s getting a copy of your accident report. Having this information at hand can help you to learn more about what the police have documented as part of their report and other important details that could help you to decide whether to move forward with a civil claim.

Where Can You Get Your Accident Report Online?

If you are hoping to obtain a copy of your accident report in Nassau or Suffolk Counties, there are a couple of different ways you can do so. 

First, you can request a copy of your accident report online through the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles by filling out and submitting this form. In order to complete this form, you’ll need to provide the license plate number of the vehicle involved in the accident. 

You could also head to the Nassau County Police Department’s website if your accident occurred in Nassau County. When you follow this link you’ll be brought to LexisNexis. You will have to “Register for an Involved Party Account” in order to obtain a copy of your accident report. 

If your accident occurred in Suffolk County, you’ll need to visit the Suffolk County Police Department’s website. When you follow this link you’ll be brought to BuyCrash.com, where you’ll have the opportunity to get a copy of your accident report online. 

Costs You Need to Be Aware Of

Unfortunately, car accident reports are not available for free to injury victims. Thankfully, the costs are minimal. To get your accident report online, you’ll need to be prepared to pay a $22 fee. Your accident report will be an invaluable piece of evidence to support your case in civil court.
