Collecting evidence can strengthen your claim

You can help yourself– and advance your legal claim– after an accident by taking the following steps:

  • Taking pictures of the damage to your car and the scene of the accident, including street signs, road debris, skid marks, and other vehicles involved
  • Writing down every detail you can remember about the minutes leading up to the crash
  • Getting the full names and contact information of witnesses
  • Being honest with authorities if you suspect the other driver violated traffic laws, was texting, drinking or otherwise impaired
  • Going to the ER for a complete medical check-up
  • Keeping records of all medical treatment expenses and other costs related to the accident

You can protect your rights further by keeping all communications about your injuries confined to your doctor and car accident lawyer. Any statements you make to insurance adjusters can be used to shift blame or undermine the success of your claim.
