Last week the Houston Auto Accidents Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office talked about some of the information a car accident victim needed to obtain while at an accident scene. There is crucial evidence that needs to be gathered as well. With the advent of camera phones it is imperative to take accident scene photos. Often times there are disputes over how a traffic accident happened (such as which lane an accident happened in or the position of the cars when an accident happened) which can be cleared up through accident scene photos. Damages to the other person’s vehicle will generally not be available at any other time other than at the scene of an accident. These photos can be valuable in showing the impact the accident had in producing your personal injuries. Obtaining names, phone numbers and addresses of witnesses is crucial in accidents where there is a dispute over what happened. Red light swearing matches can be converted from no recovery cases into cases where you can recover your medical expenses and property damages from the other party’s insurance company through eyewitness testimony. Make sure to note which police department came to the scene and obtain the police report case number to make it easy to get the report when ready.
If you have been involved in an accident and have obtained the necessary information at the scene of the accident but don’t know how to proceed, call the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office. They will use their knowledge of handling auto accidents to put your evidence and information to work.
