Building an Automobile Accident Case
Justin Sheldon—January 24, 2022
To build an effective automobile accident case, you must collect as much information as possible. Gather all the details you can, including contact information for the other driver, the other vehicle’s insurance information, and photograph any skid marks or damage to the other vehicles. Make sure to document the scene with photographs and save them in a safe place. It is also a good idea to obtain a video of the accident, particularly if camera or dash cam footage is available.
After the accident, it is important to get contact information from both parties. You should collect their insurance information, driver’s license numbers, and names. Some people even exchange social media contacts or emails. Whatever the case, the information you collect will be invaluable. You should share this with your attorney as soon as possible. After the accident, your attorney will want to call witnesses and get their statements. This is an important part of building your case.
Obtain witness statements from the other driver and take pictures of the scene. If you were not the at-fault party, try to get the name and contact information of any witnesses. This can help you establish that you were not at fault for the accident. In addition, you should gather witness statements from other drivers as well. The testimony of neutral witnesses can be crucial in building a strong automobile accident case. In order to make your claim successful, your attorney will want to investigate every detail of the accident.
