After contacting emergency services and receiving medical attention if needed, there are some things you will need to document and information you will need to exchange. If you are unable to do so right after the incident, then return to it as soon as possible or ask someone to do it for you.
Gather information: You will need to collect details of any other parties involved in the collision. Ask to see their driver’s license and proof of insurance and note down their name and contact information, as well as the vehicle’s license plate number, color, and model. Also collect the names and contact details of passengers and witnesses at the scene, as eyewitness testimony can be crucial for establishing the facts.
Collect evidence: Take photographs of the vehicles and the scene. Don’t just focus on the cars; be sure to document the entire scene including roadways and street signs.
Contact our experienced attorneys: As soon as you can after the crash, contact our law firm for a free consultation. Never provide a verbal or written statement to any insurance company without speaking to an attorney first. Your attorney can handle all communications with the insurance companies for you.
