If you have a police report, the statements in that report will not be able to change and your case will be based on what is written in the police report. 


Collect information


At the scene of the car crash or car accident, it’s important that you collect any and all information you can about the crash. That includes insurance info from other drivers, the names of everyone involved and their contact info, and witnesses’ names and contact info, license plate numbers, statements from both other parties to the car accident and from witnesses, and take photos of the scene and damage. 


Contact Your Insurance


After the accident, you should contact your insurance company. They need to know that there was an accident, especially if you were injured or have significant damage to your vehicle. The deadlines to submit information to insurance companies are typically very strict, and you’ll want to start the process ASAP.
