Our experienced car accident lawyers understand that dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can have major financial consequences if you fail to collect the right types of evidence. At Daspit Law Firm, we are committed to using our extensive legal experience to provide practical counsel to clients who want to pursue maximum compensation for car accident damages. Below, we explain the types of evidence you should gather if you’ve been involved in a car accident so that you can prove the extent of your losses.

#1: Pictures

If your injuries aren’t too severe following the accident, then you should take pictures of the vehicle and accident scene. In addition to taking pictures of the damages, you should also photograph where the vehicle ended up and any skid marks that might be useful for an accident reconstructionist. Pictures that show the weather conditions at the time of the accident can also help prove the other driver was reckless.

#2: Medical Records

Documenting the nature and extent of your injuries is one of the most crucial aspects of building a strong car accident case. Following the accident, you should seek timely medical treatment so you can be evaluated for both internal and external injuries. Make sure you tell the treating physician you were involved in a car accident. You should also keep a journal that keeps track of all your healthcare appointments, which doctors you saw, the type of treatment you received, and any charges for your medical visits.

#3: Witnesses

Gather the names and contact information of people who were present at the accident and saw the crash occur firsthand. You can also use expert witnesses who can provide their qualified opinion on complex issues relating to the accident. Common expert witnesses include doctors, engineers, and accident reconstructionists.

#4: Police Reports

Even if you think no one involved in the accident suffered any injuries, you should still call the police and ask them to respond to the accident scene so that you can file a formal report. Police reports provide an objective view of the facts of the accident and are extremely important in assigning fault to drivers.

Daspit Law Firm is here to use our firm’s cutting-edge resources to gather as much evidence as possible about your car accident case. Give us a call today at (888) 273-1045 or contact us online to request your free case consultation.
