accidents account for most of the personal injury claims in this
country. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), every 10 seconds someone in the United States
is involved in a car accident. Determining fault in a traffic accident
is a matter of proving who was negligent. If possible, have someone
photograph the accident and pavement showing signs of any physical evidence, such as skid marks. While a digital camera is best, a cell phone camera can be used in an emergency. Photographs should be taken before leaving the scene and before the vehicles are even moved.
You should always contact the police to have a report made after an accident. It is vital to document the identity of the opposing driver as well as the driver's insurance carrier and the make, model and license plate of his or her vehicle. Recording the names and contact information of any witnesses may also be essential in proving who was responsible for the collision. Also, it is always wise to immediately seek medical treatment at an hospital's emergency department in order to determine the extent and severity of your injuries.
