What information should I gather?

Posted in and tagged by Kenneth A. Wilhelm, Esq.

Every detail of the accident may prove useful if you choose to file a claim later. Here is some of the information from the crash scene that could prove valuable:

  • The location, date and time of the accident
  • Names and contact information for all parties involved, including any witnesses to the accident
  • Description of the vehicles involved, including the make and model of each vehicle
  • Insurance information for other drivers involved in the accident
  • Take photographs to document the incident. If you have your cell phone with a camera, use it. Photograph your injuries, the position of the vehicles, the damage to the vehicles, and other evidence at the scene.
