What Information Should I Collect after My Involvement in a Car Accident?
After your involvement in an automobile accident, there are certain bits of information you should collect and/or report to police officials that have come to the scene. Of course, the first thing you should do after the wreck has happened is make sure that you and anyone else involved is alright. If you are injured, then you should wait for medical help to arrive and for treatment to be administered before getting information.
Typically, it is recommended that you collect the following from the other driver:
- Name, address, and phone number
- Insurance company information: name and phone number
- License plate
- Take photographs, if possible
If there were witnesses to the incident, then you should obtain his or her name and phone number, as well. Be sure to also note the location and current weather conditions.
