It’s midweek and you are sipping coffee while driving on the same Pennsylvania highway you use each day on your way to work. Without notice your day takes a devastating turn, as another vehicle crashes into you.
Your mind is suddenly filled with questions: “What just happened to me?” “Am I injured?” “Is the other driver hurt?” Naturally you also wonder what repairs will be necessary to get your car back to normal.
If the Pennsylvania car accident was the fault of the other driver, you may need an experienced Allentown law firm to aid you in recovering proper compensation for your losses. In order to do that, you will need evidence that this car accident was not your fault. Here is what you need to do:
- Take photographs of the scene – Most cell phones have very good cameras that can capture sharp images. Take pictures of the road signs near the site of the accident. Use different angles when you shoot. Take pictures, if possible, of both cars in order to document damage.
- Do NOT wash the clothes you were wearing – Do not repair items or wash clothing that were in your car that may have been damaged or stained during the accident. This will help preserve evidence of the damage sustained to your property.
- Document yourself – If you were injured during the crash, take pictures of your cuts and bruises, including any other injury you have as a result of the accident.
- Witness identification – If there were any witnesses to the car accident, write down their names and contact information.
Even in minor fender binders, your property can be damaged and you could be injured.
