Frequently Asked Questions

I had a minor accident (no property damage other than my own vehicle) or I struck a deer yesterday.  Now my insurance company needs a report of some sort.  What do I do?
You may pick up a blank report from the Sheriff's Office or any Police Department and follow the directions for filling it out.  Then you must file it with the State of Wisconsin.

I had an accident and the Sheriff's Office was there.  How do I get a copy of their Accident Report?
You may pick up a copy of the report in person at the Sheriff's Office or it can be mailed or faxed to you.  There is a processing fee of $3.00.  Please allow 4 days for the report to be completed.  If you are planning to come to pick up a report in person, you may want to call ahead to ensure that the report is complete.
