A: It depends on the agency. If it was a Phoenix PD officer that wrote up the report, it will be available online. Other agencies require you to make requests via mail or in person. You may have to wait a few days after the accident before the report is available.

If you are seeking damages and the accident wasn't your fault, a lot of attorneys including myself will offer free consultation and will take cases on a contingency. You should consider talking to an attorney who may also be able to assist you in getting the information you need.
