If you have ever been involved in a motor vehicle accident then you know firsthand how quickly your whole life can get turned up-side-down. Every detail matters! If you are involved in an accident the first thing you must do is call 911 and wait for help to arrive. It is usually during this time period most accident victims will use their phones to take pictures of the property damage and roadway. While this is a great idea and it should be done, but only if you’re physically able, it is only a piece of the accident “puzzle.”
It is just as crucial to get the names and phone numbers of anyone that witnessed the accident.
Most witnesses will leave the scene before the police arrive. Therefore, what could have been a straightforward claim can now quickly turn into a “he-said-she-said” battle, even with all the pictures in the world. However, by getting a witnesses’ contact information, together with pictures, you hold all the vital pieces to the “puzzle.”
