Preserving Evidence After a Car Accident

Damaged car on the road

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. However, the compensation you receive will depend on how well evidence is preserved in the case. There are many types of evidence that you can collect following a car accident. Here is some of the important evidence that you may want to collect and preserve to ensure a successful claim.

If you are able to do so, take pictures of the accident scene including any damaged property, all the vehicles involved and your injuries. If there are any nearby buildings with outside surveillance cameras, get a copy of the video because the cameras may have captured the crash.

Your damaged vehicle and any property damage are important types of physical evidence. If your vehicle is towed away from the accident scene, make sure that you instruct the towing company to keep the vehicle intact until it can be examined.

If you have sustained any physical injuries, they are also an important part of your physical evidence. Make sure that you keep copies of all the medical records related to your injuries.

If you reported the crash to the police, you should have a copy of the police report. This report is an important piece of evidence as it will list the basic details of the accident from the officer’s perspective. The police report will also mention any traffic citations given to any of the parties involved.
