Personal Injury Matter – Process and Timeline to Compensation
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to call the police right away and have them complete a Traffic Collision Report. A Traffic Collision Report (“TCR”) or a police report is important when you are involved in a car accident for a number of reasons. First, the TCR will serve as evidence for your injury claim. It summarizes the name(s), address(es), contact information, and insurance information of all the parties involved. It also provides the officer’s opinion as to the “cause” of the collision. But, how do you obtain a copy once it has been completed in the City of Beverly Hills, California?
How to obtain your TCR?
You can make a request for a TCR online at the following web address: https://www.beverlyhills.org/departments/policedepartment/onlineservices/trafficcollisionreports/web.jsp. Make sure to have the TCR Number available. This will usually be provided by the officer to you at the scene of the accident.
2. in writing
You can make a written request to the Beverly Hills Sheriff Department by delivering a written request to:
Beverly Hills Police Department
