The minutes after a car collision can be excruciating. You may be overwhelmed and unsure of what steps to take to protect yourself. The most important thing you can do is get help for your injuries. Your health and well-being should be the top priority, as well as that of any other injured parties.
In addition to seeking medical attention, you should also try to collect evidence at the scene. Take pictures and videos at the accident site. Document the condition of the road and the weather. Write down the names of all parties, including any witnesses to the crash. All of the information may prove critical to your case down the road.
There are several types of evidence that you can collect immediately after a collision and in the days that follow. During this time, it is also vital to consult with an attorney. A car accident lawyer can help you understand what evidence will help your case and may be able to subpoena documents or audio and video that you might not otherwise be aware of.
Types of evidence that may help your case:
It is not your job to prove liability at the scene. You should not admit fault or make statements that may make it seem like you are accepting responsibility for the accident. Before speaking with an insurance adjuster, you should contact an attorney. Any statements that you write or record can be used against you and may hurt your case.
