After you’ve been in a car accident, it can be hard to stay focused at the scene, especially if you’re injured.
If you have the ability, however, try to get photos of the vehicles, the overall scene, and any injuries.
If you can get the names and contact information of witnesses, try to do that, too.
People want to leave the scene of an accident, so if you can speak to them quickly and get basic information, it can be a huge help to your case later.
Often, if several people see a wreck, they will start leaving if they think even one other person will stay. They don’t want to be involved, and don’t want to talk to adjusters or lawyers about a case they weren’t injured in.
However, most people DO want to help, and if you can get their information, our lawyers know how to talk to to them later. After interviewing hundreds of witnesses over the decades, our attorneys and staff contact people in the least intrusive ways possible, and minimize the witnesses’ inconvenience.
You need experienced lawyers who know how to respect witnesses and still get their cooperation. Contact our offices today for a risk-free consultation, by clicking here or calling us at 919-348-4361.
