According to the Texas Transportation Code, any law enforcement officer who investigates a motor vehicle crash must submit a written report of that crash to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) not later than the tenth day after the date of the crash. However, this does not mean that the report will be available to the public immediately. TxDOT may take some time to process and verify the report before making it accessible through their online system. The availability of the report may vary depending on the complexity of the crash, the workload of the agency, and the accuracy of the information provided by the officer. Generally, it may take up to two weeks or more for the report to be available online.

Your Texas crash report is an important document that contains detailed information about your motor vehicle accident. It can help you in several ways, such as:
- Filing a claim with your insurance company: Your crash report can provide evidence of how the accident happened, who was at fault, what damages and injuries were caused, and whether any citations were issued. This can help you prove your case and get fair compensation from your insurance company or the other party’s insurance company.
- Seeking legal action: If you decide to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver or another liable party, your crash report can support your claim and show that you deserve compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Your crash report can also help you determine the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit in Texas, which is generally two years from the date of the accident.
- Protecting your rights: Your crash report can help you avoid any false or fraudulent claims from the other party or their insurance company. It can also help you correct any errors or inaccuracies that may affect your claim or lawsuit.
Therefore, it is important to obtain a copy of your Texas crash report as soon as possible after your accident and review it carefully for any errors or missing information. You should also keep a copy of your report in a safe place and share it with your insurance company and your attorney if you have one.
If you notice any errors or omissions in your Texas crash report, you should contact the law enforcement agency that prepared the report and request a correction or amendment. You may need to provide proof or documentation to support your request, such as photographs, witness statements, medical records, or vehicle repair estimates. The agency may review your request and decide whether to make any changes to the report. The process and time frame for correcting or amending a crash report may vary depending on the agency and the nature of the error.
For example, if your crash was investigated by the HPD, you can submit a request for correction or amendment by mail or in person at their Records Division. You will need to fill out a form and attach a copy of your crash report and any supporting documents. The HPD will review your request and notify you of their decision within 30 days. If they approve your request, they will send you an updated copy of your crash report. If they deny your request, they will explain their reasons and inform you of your right to appeal.
