When you’re involved in a car accident, you need to gather some information at the time that it occurs. You should always get the contact information of everybody that’s been involved in the collision, the person that hits you. If there were multiple cars involved in a car accident, you have to get their information. You also have to get their insurance information, the name of their insurance company and their policy number.If there are witnesses, you need to get the names and phone numbers of all the witnesses that observed what went on. There’s a lot of gathering information that you should do. Sometimes, it’s difficult. If you’ve been injured in that accident or seriously injured, you’re not going to be able to gather that information right away. You need to make sure you contact an attorney or a family member and let them know what has happened so that they can do the investigation.
