What are the first things I should do if I have been hurt in a car crash?
If you are injured in a car wreck, it’s important to get medical attention right away. However, if you are physically able to, you should also aim to get evidence from the accident scene. Find out if there is an eyewitness such as the driver of a car in front of you that has stopped or a passer-by. Be sure to get that witness’ details such as their name, phone number and email address.
Although a police officer will usually be on the scene and compile an accident report, it’s not always accurate. An independent eyewitness can be crucial to your case. If you have a smart phone with a camera, aim to take pictures from the accident scene. By the time the police arrive, the scene may have changed or the at-fault driver may have moved his or her vehicle. Interview witnesses on video if possible. Details can be quickly forgotten at a later date.
