You can either go in person to get a copy of your Noblesville car accident report or retrieve a copy online. A third-party provider maintains the BuyCrash portal, which the Indiana State Police use to make accident reports available digitally.
We can also help you with all the paperwork necessary for your personal injury case.
Things to Know When You Get Your Accident Report
If you plan to go to the Noblesville Police Department’s Records Division for a copy of the report in person, you can expect to pay $5 for a copy. You may have to wait two days after the accident for the copy to become available. The Noblesville Police Department recommends calling in advance to be sure the report is ready.
To get your report through the BuyCrash website, you’ll want to be prepared with identifying details from the accident, such as the report number and the date and location of the crash.
How We Can Help You Gather Evidence for Your Case
When you file a claim or lawsuit, you will need to have evidence that someone else caused your accident, your injuries, and your losses following the accident. We will help you build this case file—and your accident report is an important starting point.
Using Your Accident Report to Prove Negligence
There are potentially many important details included in your accident report that can help us prove fault for your accident. The report should note when and how your accident happened, what damages were caused to the vehicles, and any citations issued to the drivers.
If someone else caused your accident, it is likely that they were issued a citation, which is important evidence of negligence. Forms of driver negligence may include:
- Distracted driving
- Illegal maneuvers
- Driving under the influence
- Improper lane changes
- And more
Even if your accident report doesn’t give a clear indication that the other driver was negligent, we may be able to seek out evidence from other sources. We will work to build a case proving the other driver was mainly at fault for your crash.
Other Types of Evidence That Will Build Your Case
If you could collect other forms of evidence at the accident scene and in the weeks or months following, you could share these details with us. This may include witness contact information you gathered after the crash or receipts for travel expenses incurred because your car was under repair.
We will scour for evidence that proves both the other driver’s fault and the extent of your injuries. Relevant sources of evidence that could help your case include:
- Eyewitness statements
- Footage from local traffic cameras
- Accident reconstruction
- Medical records
- Statements from your doctors
- And more
There Is Limited Time to File a Lawsuit in Indiana
While we will typically begin your case as an insurance claim, we may recommend filing a lawsuit in some cases. In such situations, we will have to comply with the state’s statute of limitations in Indiana, limiting the time you have to file suit (per IC §34-11-2-4).
This means that it is a good idea to get started on your case as soon as you can. In doing so, you can keep your legal options open and give our team time to build a compelling case.
How Shared Fault Laws in Indiana May Affect Your Case
You may wonder if you have a right to seek compensation if you bear some fault for the accident. For instance, the accident report could note that you made an improper lane change at the time of the crash—but the other driver was under the influence.
As long as you weren’t more responsible for the accident, you could still seek recovery from the other driver (per IC §15-20-1-3). However, you don’t have to worry about figuring out how these laws affect your case. We can do that for you.
