The process of investigating a car accident in preparation for a suit is a daunting task. Immediately after the accident and after the well-being and health of all those involved is confirmed, parties should have a police officer on hand and have a report created at the time of the accident. You should
take the time to gather all pertinent information from all those involved – names, addresses, driver’s license numbers, vehicle plate numbers, and insurance information. Additional information, such whether drivers involved were doing so for their employers, is also crucial. If there were any additional witnesses, their names and contact information should also be collected.
Photographs are incredibly important, and photographs of the accident scene are useful for proving liability later on. Photographic evidence of the condition of the vehicles involved, where the traffic signals are located, skid marks, and the condition of the parties involved, can play a role later on if the case goes to trial.
After the accident, evidence of the damages suffered should be collected. This includes medical treatment records from health care providers who provided treatment after the accident, records related to car repairs and car rentals, and any records pertaining to lost wages.
