If a person gets injured in an accident through the negligence or malicious intent of another, there is documentation that can make the process of a personal injury lawsuit far easier and one should keep the following points in mind. When the injury or accident happens, often times there is much confusion and emotional upset in the immediate environment and it is not always possible to obtain documentation or information right away.

When this is the case, simply get as much as you can and follow up or have a family member or friend follow up as soon as time permits to get the rest. Following is a list of things to be aware of that can provide valuable information and documentation in case of an accident or injury; this determines the strength of your claim.

  • Get contact information of any who were involved in the accident;
  • Get contact information of any witnesses to the accident ;
  • If possible get photographs of the accident scene and damage incurred;
  • Get insurance information from those involved in the accident; and
  • Get together the names and addresses of any treating physicians
