The health and safety of yourself, or anyone else involved in an auto accident, is of paramount importance. Seek immediate medical attention for any injuries that may require it.
Auto accident scenes can be a nightmare of chaos and confusion. There may be traffic whizzing by, flashing lights, broken glass, crying, even screaming. It’s hard to manage a coherent thought, let alone have the presence of mind to consider what pieces of evidence may be important. Still, should you have the misfortune of being involved in a car accident, particularly if another party is at fault, these are the pieces of evidence worth gathering.
Keep in mind, even if the accident is relatively minor, you should still gather as much of this information as possible. Injuries that don’t seem serious at first may manifest later, and vehicular damage isn’t always immediately apparent.
The more information and evidence you have at your disposal, the better your chance to prove your case and achieve a positive outcome:
…as soon as possible after the accident with all the details, including the other party’s insurance carrier. That carrier will probably contact you fishing for information, but do not give them a statement of any kind. You’re not legally required to do so.
A lawyer experienced with auto accidents, and the personal injury claims that may result from those accidents, can make a real difference when seeking the compensation you may be entitled to. They can also secure accident evidence that you yourself do not have access to, such as 911 calls and cell phone records.
