Evidence is the key to proving negligence in a car accident claim. Effective evidence can help you receive fair compensation for your injuries and damages. It is advisable to gather evidence as soon as possible as some evidence may alter or deteriorate with time.
The following is some of the evidence you should gather at the scene of a car accident:
- Information about the other driver including contact information, driver’s license number, insurance policy number and information, and license plate number
- Contact information for the witnesses
- Copy of the police report
- Photos of the damaged vehicles and any other vehicles involved
- Photos of the road condition where the accident occurred and the vehicles involved including tire marks, road signs, debris or any other conditions that may be related to the accident
- Photos of any CCTV cameras near the accident area that may have recorded the accident
