    If you’ve ever been in a car accident, you know that it can be a traumatic experience.  It is easy to forget what you should do and information that you should collect at the accident scene.

    Here is our list of the most important information that you can gather at the scene of the accident.

    What evidence to collect after a car crash.

    Insurance Information

    Getting the other drivers’ contact information is extremely important.  So is all of their car insurance information. If you need to file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit, it will help to know the name of the insurance company and each person’s policy number.

    Photos of the Auto Accident Scene

    Take photos of the accident scene including road dangers and skid marks from a driver braking too hard.  Also capture pictures of the property damage that was done to each vehicle.

    It’s also a good idea to take picture of any visible injuries.  Pictures of your bruises, cuts, broken bones, and other injuries will help to show that the injuries were a direct result of the vehicle accident.

    Police Report

    The accident report that a responding police officer fills out will be important evidence to your later insurance claim or personal injury case.  This report will often include important information such as drivers’ contact information, drivers’ license numbers, vehicle VINs, license plate numbers, and any witness statements.  In Nevada, we need both a license plate number and VIN to seek insurance policy information from the DMV.

    Medical Records

    After you have been in a car accident, you should seek immediate medical treatment for all injuries.  As you are collecting evidence to bring to your insurance adjuster or personal injury lawyer, you should obtain copies of all your medical bills and records to help show that your injuries were caused by the accident.
