Ensure you get the contact details of all people involved in the accident, names, phone numbers, vehicle registrations, and most importantly insurance details. If there were any witnesses present also take their contact details.
Take photographs of the scene of the accident, Snaps from your phone are sufficient. If you can’t take photos, try to draw a sketch while you are at the scene. Often victims are so in shock it can be difficult to describe what happened afterwards.
Retain any medical records, receipts for medical treatments, GP and Consultant visits and any medication prescribed due to the accident.
Part of your injury claim will also be based upon the financial impact the accident has had one you, eg. If you’ve had to take unpaid leave due to the injury or any other expenses that you have incurred due to the accident, keep a record of all receipts.
