How To Get the Highway Patrol Report
Msgt E R Kessler Assisted By Sgt J A Mulkey With Crash Team of the Missouri State Highway Patrol wrote up the report. The highway patrol assigned report number 220111254 to this crash. The highway patrol charges $6.90 for each certified report (certification required for court). But you can call 877-925-1969 to request a free copy of the report. The highway patrol is currently backlogged and they state on their website that you will have to wait 10 days and may have to wait an "extended period of time" beyond that for the report. Further, unless you qualify under the Federal Driver's Privacy Protection Act, the report you get will have important and necessary information such as photographs, social security numbers, driver license numbers, names, addresses and telephone numbers redacted (blacked out).
I obtained the information prompting this solicitation from the Missouri State Highway Patrol website.
Ross may have an insurance claim. A lawyer will maximize the amount collected from the insurance company. In most cases, injured people can recover money for their medical bills, lost wages, and for their pain and suffering—even if a family member was driving. Getting a lawyer working on this case early will allow Ross to receive advice about preserving and gathering evidence and the value of their claim, which will help with the recovery.
