In order to provide evidence in your case, you will need to preserve it. One way is to use any physical evidence that is available. Taking pictures of the damage to your vehicle can help demonstrate how the accident happened and who was at fault.
Pictures of the accident scene or your injuries can also be helpful. Physical evidence can also include a copy of the police report. This may offer an explanation as to what led up to the accident and if the other side was given a citation.
A second way to preserve evidence is to get statements from witnesses. They may be able to offer additional information that helps your case. Or they may have overhead a conversation in which the other driver admitted fault. Be sure to get names and phone numbers of the witnesses.
A third way you can preserve evidence in your personal injury claim is to document the injuries you have sustained by seeking medical attention and obtaining copies of:
- lab results; and
- other records.
