The Importance of Documenting the Scene of a Car Accident

A car accident is a very traumatic and painful event. Whether you are involved in a single-vehicle accident or a multi-vehicle accident, the injuries caused by a collision are often serious or life-threatening. If you or your passengers have sustained injuries from a car accident, getting medical attention is the first priority. Once emergency medical care has assessed your condition, it is important for the parties to exchange contact information and provide a statement to the police. Never admit any fault, simply provide facts the officer can use to file his or her report. The police report from the scene of an accident is an essential piece of evidence that will be used to help in determining liability for the accident and to substantiate your insurance claims.
