1. Make Notes Some of the most important advice to give accident victims is to make sure they get their story straight. Clients need to get a clear story in their head so they can tell the same series of events to every party, from insurance adjusters to policemen. Have them make notes as soon as possible (even at the scene) about everything, whether it seems relevant or not. How did the collision happen? What cars were involved? How many passengers were in each car? What did the other driver say to you, or what did you overhear them say to other people? These are just a few potential questions your client will need to answer. Elements such as the weather and location of the accident are also very important. Finally, the client (or their passengers) needs to take as many pictures as possible. Pictures need to be taken of both cars (from all angles) and of the area surrounding the accident. 2. Dont Admit Fault One of the biggest impediments to receiving repayments and insurance payouts is unknowingly admitting guilt and responsibility for the accident.
