Call (800) 863-5312 for Your Free Consultation
All traffic accidents must be reported immediately in the state of Colorado. If a police officer responds to the scene, they will gather all of the relevant information from both parties. This is required by law because it is extremely important to have a detailed and official record of what happened.

Requesting an Accident Report
If you plan to file a claim with the insurance company for a wreck that you were involved in, they will ask you to obtain a copy of the official accident report.
To obtain a copy of a traffic accident report written by a Colorado Springs Police Officer, use this link. This will take you to the Colorado Springs Police Department Traffic Accident Report Request.
The CSPD has clearly written out instructions to complete your request. Once all of the fields are properly filled out, you will need to print and mail the completed form to the CSPD Records Release Unit (address is listed on the form).
You will also need to include the proper payment for your accident report. The schedule of fees can be viewed here. Enclose your payment inside the envelope, along with your report request. Payment is accepted only in the form of money order or personal check; no cash will be accepted.
Why Do I Need an Accident Report?
It is very important to acquire a copy of this document as soon as possible. Before you can be compensated for the damages suffered in the accident, the insurance company will need to determine that the other party was at fault.
The accident report will include such details as parties involved, who the officer found to be at fault, and the events that took place immediately following the accident. This firsthand account recorded by an officer is likely to be the most accurate way to determine who caused the accident.
