A car accident is often a frightening and overwhelming experience, which can leave you shaken. However, it is imperative to gather evidence to ensure that you obtain the maximum amount of financial compensation necessary to pay for property damage, medical expenses, loss of income, as well as pain and suffering.
The following are helpful tips for documenting a car collision:
- Exchange information with other driver and witnesses. You must do is obtain the contact and insurance information of the other driver. If witnesses are present, ask if they are willing to cooperate with filing your claim and get their contact information as well.
- Take notes of the scene of the crash. Write down what exactly happened, who was driving where, and what led to the accident. Also make note of the speed you were driving, the current road conditions, and whether there were any distractions.
- Take pictures. Photographic evidence can really strengthen your case. Since all smartphones are equipped with cameras, take pictures of the damage (exterior and interior) to both vehicles, the injuries suffered, the positions of the vehicles, the other vehicle’s license plate, and any debris or skid marks related to the accident.
- Record the recovery process of your injuries. In order to demonstrate the severity of the injury sustained in the accident, you must document the process of recovery.
