What information should I collect after a personal injury accident?
You should collect the names and phone numbers of any witnesses, if you are able. You should write down the police officer’s name and try to get the crash report number, if the police are involved. If you’ve been involved in a car, truck, motorcycle or pedestrian accident, you should take photographs of the vehicles and accident scene. If the other person caused the wreck you should ask him or her to write out a statement or give you a recorded statement on the voice recorder on your phone that they were at fault. However, your first priority should be getting the medical attention you need even if this prevents you from getting the information listed above.
