If you were involved in a car accident, proving who was at fault could be tricky. When proving an individual is at fault, your goal is to prove they acted negligently or carelessly which led to the accident and injury. Below are some tips from our Greenville MS injury lawyer on how you can gather the evidence you need to prove a third party is at fault for your accident.

Take photos

Whether you were injured in a car accident or while on the job, taking photos at the scene of the event is extremely important for insurance adjusters and attorneys to put the puzzle pieces back together again. If you were involved in a car accident, understanding what was happening leading up to the point of impact might be easier based on the angle of the damage and depth and length of any scratches or dents. When a workplace accident occurs, photos can help detail the working environment at the time of the incident.

Request for Police Reports

Car accidents often involve police regardless of how minor the incident was that occurred. Police are required to assess the situation and write detailed reports of their findings; they are trained to investigate. After you and the other person involved in the accident have been safely transported away from the scene, you should consider contacting the police station regarding the police report of the incident.

Gather Witnesses

Sometimes when people are injured, they black out and can’t remember what happened leading up the accident. If this happens, you may want to consider asking around to see if anyone witnessed what happened. Once you can find witnesses, take down their contact information so you can contact them throughout the process of your settlement.
