What evidence do you need?

- Photographs of the scene – most of us carry smartphones so use your camera to take some photos of the immediate aftermath of the accident
- Talk to witnesses – ask witnesses on the scene if they will provide a statement, and get their contact details
- Call the police – if the accident was criminal in nature or if your injuries were serious, you should contact the police. They will get provide you with a crime reference number that you can use in evidence.
