Learn how to get your accident report from the Colorado Springs Police (CSPD)
A traffic accident report is an important document in any auto accident injury case. It is a report filed by a police officer that describes the facts and circumstances surrounding the accident.
Because your accident report is used as evidence by insurance companies and the court system, it is important to review your accident report to ensure the information is 100% accurate.
If your accident was attended to by the Colorado Springs Police Department or the El Paso County Sheriff, follow the instructions below. Otherwise you will need to request a report from that filing agency.

Why Should I Obtain a Police Accident Report?
An accident report includes pertinent facts and statements about your car accident, such as:
- names of all drivers and passengers involved in the accident;
- contact information and insurance details for all parties involved;
- any injuries sustained in the accident;
- illegal activity or failure to follow traffic laws by either driver;
- damage to vehicles and other public or private property;
- witness statements; and
- description of the accident and events leading up to the crash.
The police officer may also assign fault to one or both drivers in the traffic accident report. If you notice an error in your accident report or disagree with the version of events detailed in the report, talk to your attorney. It can be very difficult to change the information in a police report, but a skilled personal injury attorney may be able to help.
