How do I request a copy of an accident report?
Florida State Statute 316.066(5)(a) states that crash reports are confidential for period of 60 days after the report is filed. However, such reports may be made immediately available to the parties involved in the crash, their legal representatives, their insurance companies and agents, prosecutorial authorities, victim services programs, and certain print and broadcast media as described in the exemption. All must have proper ID and/or written consent within the first 60 days from date of occurrence to obtain a copy of the accident report. The owner of a vehicle involved in a crash is also among those authorized to receive a copy of the crash report immediately with proof of ownership. Reports can be requested by phone at (561)304-4867, in person at the police department.
