After a car accident, it’s only natural to feel the shock of the situation. It’s easy to forget what you should do and even easier to miss out on some important pieces of evidence needed to properly pursue a car accident claim.
One of the most important things that you can do, however, is fully recognize what your rights are and what evidence can help you in your pursuit of compensation. Here are a few of the most important things you should have after a crash.
Negligent Driver’s Insurance Information
Exchanging the insurance coverage information can help you when filing a claim. Your insurance company can work with the responsible party’s insurance company to hammer out the details of the crash, determine negligence, and move forward with the claim. You can also provide this information to your legal team to pursue legal action if necessary.
Photos of the Accident
Take photos of the accident scene such as road dangers or tire marks from braking too hard. This can aid in showing how the accident occurred. You may also want to take pictures of the damage done to your vehicle, as well as the other party’s, which could give an idea of which angles the accident may have happened.
Taking pictures of your visible injuries—including bruises, cuts, sores, broken bones, or other issues—can show that the injuries you sustained were a direct result of the accident. This is one factor of proving liability and pursuing compensation.
Medical Records Can Be Helpful
You want to see a doctor after an accident to begin treating any injuries you sustain. However, you also want to get medical records to help show your injuries were a direct result of the accident in which you were involved.
