How to Get an Accident Report in Tampa
When you have been seriously injured in an accident, especially if you plan to take any sort of legal action against the person or persons who are responsible for causing your collision, having a copy of your accident report can be valuable to the success of your Tampa personal injury case.
For this reason, we have provided information below regarding how you can go about obtaining a copy of your car accident report in Tampa, as well as how much you can expect to pay out of pocket for the report.
Obtaining Your Accident Report
In order to obtain a copy of your Tampa car accident report, you have two options. If your accident occurred more than sixty days ago, you can request a copy of your accident report online via the City of Tampa Traffic Accident Report Request portal. Here, you’ll search for a copy of your report and then have it emailed to you.
For reports filed less than sixty days ago, you will need to contact the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) by phone at (850) 617-3416.
How Much Is Your Accident Report Going to Cost You?
The good thing about getting your accident report emailed to you is that you can avoid the lines you’d have to navigate if you went down to the FLHSMV to request a copy in person. Obtaining your report via the online portal costs just $2.00 per copy and can be paid with most major credit cards.
