Minneapolis Car Accident Police Report


Our attorneys always get the police report as soon as we take on a new Minneapolis car accident case.  However, sometimes people want to get the police accident report themselves, even before hiring a lawyer.  You can obtain a Minneapolis auto accident police report by going to pick it up or by sending a written request to the police records department.  The Minneapolis police department may charge you approximately $5 for a copy of the report depending on how many pages it is.

Our car accident lawyers have found that there are sometimes supplemental reports or other information that have to be specifically requested. For example, there may be photographs and body cam or squad cam videos.  Therefore, when you make the request for a Minneapolis police report for an auto accident, you should specifically ask whether or not there are is any supplemental information.  Also, if there is any prosecution involved, the city or Hennepin County prosecutor’s office may have their own file in addition to the police report.

You should also check to see if there were other reporting agencies like the Minnesota State Patrol.  If so, you have to request their report separately.  If you have questions about Minneapolis police car accident reports or investigation after an auto accident, you can call our office for a free consultation with a car accident lawyer.
