Most people injured in a Queens automobile accident fail to do the little things at the scene that can make the difference between a “he said…she said” case and a slam-dunk case. Some quick thinking can preserve key pieces of evidence that may forever disappear shortly thereafter.
Get Witnesses from Your Auto Accident
If you ever get injured in a motor vehicle accident, do your best to obtain the names, addresses and phone numbers of as many witnesses as possible. If you are too injured to do this yourself, ask someone to do it for you. Most of the time people who see the whole thing fail to stick around until the police arrive or simply never step forward. This means that you’ll probably never find these people again. So be pro-active and ask for their help.
Preserve Evidence By Taking Photos
Also, make sure that you photograph BOTH vehicles. Nowadays most cell phones conveniently contain cameras, so use it to document the post-accident positions of the vehicles and the damage caused by the collision. As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words!
