After an accident, the collection of evidence is critical. Certain key pieces of evidence and information often becomes the essential cornerstone or foundation upon which a personal injury claim is based.
Evidence is the critical building block of any personal injury claim, and becomes the justification for the amount and extent of compensation you may be entitled.
In order for the information to be critical, it must first be relevant.
What exactly is “relevant” information and evidence in an accident claim?
More or less, everything and anything in any way to do with your accident and your injuries. No matter how small a detail some bit of information may be can be “relevant”.
For example, at your accident site, it’s critical to notice and write down and photograph the other vehicle, the accident scene, the position of the vehicles, photos of any witnesses and any problems or road or weather conditions that may have played a part in your accident, including, but not limited to:
- Details and descriptions of damage to all vehicles involved in the accident
- Identifying information for every vehicle involved
- Date and time of the accident
- Especially license numbers of all vehicles involved in the accident
- Pedestrian and commuter traffic
- Road and weather conditions
Due to the possible importance of every detail in auto claims, it is usually very helpful to take photos immediately after the accident of any adverse conditions, road damage or vehicle damage.
When you decide to make an auto accident claim, these details will provide the strongest possible support to your claims. Having these details in clear photograph form, their strength is only multiplied from just your testimony, and your overall claim is credited with higher quality proof.
