The Birmingham News reported today that the State has instituted a new eCrash system. This system allows the State Troopers to submit wreck reports electronically. According to the article, this will make the process quicker and allow victims of car wrecks and insurance companies to obtain the reports in a more timely fashion.
Anyone who has attempted to obtain accident reports in the last few years knows how long the delay has been. When the collision is significant enough, it can take months to get the report. Now, the report will be available much more quickly.
This is very important for victims of crashes. The sooner the reports can be obtained, the sooner the investigation can be completed, and the sooner the report can be sent to the insurance carrier so the matter can be resolved. When people are injured and cannot work, it is important to get quick decisions from insurance companies so that they can compensate the victim and help them move on with their lives.
