What information should I gather at the scene of the car accident?
Gather all the information that you can. Nowadays, lots of people have cell phones with cameras on them. If you have one of these phones, snap some pictures of the damage done to your car, the damage done to the other car, and the license plate number of the other car. You might have the other party write a little statement of their version of what they think happened. If the police come out, they are going to do their own investigation. Their report will have your version of what happened, the other driver's version of what happened, and then the officer's version of what he thinks happened. Anybody who was there that saw the accident occur and was detached would be a good witness because their credibility can be trusted.
How can I prove fault in Personal Injury?
It is really the attorney's job to prove fault in a personal injury claim. If we have the tools to do it, that helps a lot. So bring in everything you can about the accident when you come to visit with your attorney. Attorneys look at everything. What I ask people to bring, if possible, are the pictures of the cars that were damaged. These are all little pieces of the puzzle that I can put together, and I can see what really happened. All of these little details add up to show fault.
