Definition of Evidence

Preserving evidence in a car accident is critical to winning a car accident claim. Evidence is any type of information that can be used to prove a car accident claim. Drivers who are in a car accident should gather evidence immediately after the accident. The longer a claimants waits the more evidence can be lost. Common car accident evidence can include: names and contact information of drivers, names and contact information of the vehicles' registered owners, driver's license numbers, names and contact information of all passengers, names and contact information of any witnesses, names of drivers' insurance companies and policy numbers, the location of the car accident, details about the car accident, characteristics of all of the other drivers (lack of balance, slurred speech, intoxication level, red eyes), the names of the police officers, descriptions of damage to property or vehicles, and photographs of the car accident scene.
