If you are involved in a car accident in Louisville or anywhere else in Kentucky, it is important that you contact the police immediately to file an accident report. A police report or accident report (Kentucky Uniform Police Traffic Collision Report) can be important even in accidents where it appears no one is injured. This police report/accident report will record the names of all parties involved in the accident, the time and date of the accident, the location of the accident and the property damage caused by the accident. Kentucky accident reports also list the apparent contributing factors (such as weather, lighting conditions, driver "inattention", etc). Accident reports also list available automobile insurance information and any citations that were issued. The investigating officer will file the accident report with the police department and the report will be available for you on-line or via U.S. Mail.
