How To Document The Crash

The first thing to do is call 911 to get the police and an ambulance to the scene as soon as possible. Once the call is made, you should immediately take pictures of the vehicles involved, including a legible close-up of the license plates. This is important in case one of the vehicles attempts to leave the scene before the police arrive. Next, take photos that establish the locations such as street signs and landmarks, noting items on the scene that may have contributed to the accident such as skid marks, potholes, downed stop signs, broken street lights and/or foliage that’s grown over signs. If you’re bleeding or have any other visual signs of injury, take photos and videos that will show the relationship between the crash and your injuries. Next, take photos of ID’s of all involved and their insurance information. Next, speak to an experienced Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan and Bronx car accident attorney about next steps for your particular case.

How To Document Your Injury Claim

The best way to get your case started is to accept the offer to be taken by ambulance to the hospital to be checked out. This will be helpful evidence of the relationship between your injuries and the accident, in addition to indicating that your injuries are severe. The larger the gap between the accident and medical treatment, the greater the inference that the injuries are not related or are minor. If you don’t go to the hospital by ambulance, you should go on your own to a hospital or urgent care center as soon as possible thereafter. It’s important to follow up with all the testing and consultations with specialists that are recommended during your hospital or urgent care visit. If your injuries are severe or catastrophic, you may want to get second opinions before undergoing treatment. For injuries that are less severe, it’s important to follow up with MRI’s and other types of testing for soft tissue injuries that can be objective evidence for the pain your experiencing.
