    True or false? Car accident pictures are the only records I need to keep?


    Being prepared for unfortunate situations such as a car traffic accident can ensure that you act as efficiently as possible following a collision. Car crashes are without doubt highly distressing, but knowing the steps you need to take following a road-related incident will put you in the best position for your future car crash claim.

    So, are car accident pictures the only records I need to keep?

    In answer to the title question – NO. Car accident pictures are not the only records that you need to keep on file regarding your accident.

    Should you decide to progress a car crash claim, there are a number of pieces of information and records you will need to provide. This is to ensure that a compensation advice provider, such as Accident Advice Helpline, will be able to guarantee a streamlined car-accident claim process.

    What else do I need?

    Information you should aim to collate at the scene of your road traffic accident, includes:

    • the personal details of any other drivers – their name, address and contact numbers
    • the insurance details of any other drivers
    • any witness details – speak briefly regarding their interpretation of events and obtain their name, address and contact numbers

    What else can I do to help my claim?

    It is always advisable to stay calm and collected at the scene of a car crash. Although emotions will be high, your temperament may be discussed in court and it is to your benefit to demonstrate a co-operative and mature manner.
