The information collected after an automobile accident can prove invaluable to a future lawsuit against the driver who caused your injuries. Some of the most important information you need should be collected by a police officer and filed as a formal police report.
After an auto accident, you should collect all the information that is available about the scene of the accident, including:
- The time of the accident
- The road conditions
- How many people or vehicles were involved
- If there were any witnesses who were not a part of the accident.
With today's technology, pictures are even easier to collect and can often provide the best evidence about the accident.
Your automobile accident attorney at Pilka & Associates, P.A., will need the name of the driver who you think hit your car and any other drivers involved in the accident. Collect the insurance company information of each of the drivers and be sure to write down the policy number so you can easily identify the drivers later. Additionally, you should gather the names, and if possible, some contact information for the witnesses in the area. This may prove invaluable later on.
