Rocklin California Injury FAQ

How do I get a copy of my car accident report or a traffic collision report?

If you have been hurt in a car accident through no fault of your own, it is essential that you speak to a top-rated personal injury attorney in Rocklin. Consultations are completely free. If an attorney is representing you, he or she will obtain your police report on your behalf.

If you have not been injured and wish to get it yourself, you can visit the Rocklin Police Department at:

Accident reports are free. You will need your photo ID. Reports generally take 5-10 business days to prepare, so you may want to call them in advance at 916-625-5400.

What if I have been attacked by an unregistered dog?

Rocklin requires that dogs over the age of 4 months old be registered with them. If you have been injured by a dog, many variables come into play. Many animal attack victims hesitate to call us because they were bitten at a friend or family member’s house.

It is important to note that dog owners have insurance for this type of event. Call our personal injury law firm today for a confidential and free consultation if you have been bitten or attacked by a dog or another animal.

What if I have been injured in a hit and run?

Our Rocklin car accident lawyers have worked many personal injury cases on hit and run crashes. Hit and runs are the most common when a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorcyclist is involved. Sometimes drivers flee when they fear they have caused severe damage, are driving under the influence, or have no insurance.

Leaving the scene of an accident when a serious injury or death occurred typically results in a felony arrest. Regardless, we would like to speak to you if you were hit by a driver who fled the scene or had no insurance.
