What information do I need to obtain after my auto accident?
It is important to obtain the following information before leaving the accident scene:
- The full names and contact information of all other drivers involved in the auto accident
- The driver’s license numbers and insurance information for all other drivers
- The full names and contact information of any witnesses
If possible, it’s a good idea to take photographs of the accident scene and the damage to the vehicles as well. If you do not have a camera with you, a cell phone camera will do. You should also notify the police and have an officer fill out an accident report before leaving the scene. Of course, if you or any of the passengers in the vehicle are hurt, you should seek medical attention immediately.
