What to Do for Maximum Compensation


Of course the first step, required by law, is to stop immediately regardless of injury or damage. Call for an ambulance if there are injuries.

Then proceed to collect information, as much and as detailed as possible, including:


  • Driver’s name, home address, date of birth
  • Driver’s license information
  • Insurance company, policy number, other insurance details
  • Photos of damage, injuries, scene of the accident, and any other relevant items
  • Names, phone numbers and/or emails, and other information from witnesses

Pictures taken at the scene of the accident can make a huge difference in an injury and liability case. Wounds heal over time, and you will have your car fixed as soon as possible, so often the photos become the only lasting evidence to be used in your case.
