Not only is it important to be treated for your injuries for health reasons but this will also provide evidence. If you hope to recover financial losses stemming from medical bills or missed time from work, you will need documentation of the injuries you have sustained.

Another way you can preserve your claim is to take pictures of the accident. If you are unable to, try to enlist the help of a family member or friend.

To help determine liability, take photos of: 
  • the damaged vehicles;
  • the scene of the accident;
  • road signs; and
  • weather conditions.  

These photographs could be used as evidence later on.

You can also preserve your claim by getting the contact information of any witnesses to the accident. You may need their testimony later on. So try to obtain their name and phone number.

Although a police report can help in determining fault, the witnesses may be able to provide information that adds to your case. If witnesses have their own pictures of the accident scene, ask for copies.

An attorney can help you gather the evidence and statements you may need to reach a fair settlement in Atlanta. Consult with a personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Jason Schultz today at 404-474-0804.
