Eye Witnesses in Car Accidents
Immediately following an accident a person’s attention is usually focused on ensuring the safety of all parties involved and seeking emergency medical attention if necessary, and, many times, the little things that can help you later on in an insurance claim or lawsuit are quickly forgotten. One of the most helpful things you can do after an accident, aside from ensuring you have the contact information of the other driver, is to secure the contact information of potential eyewitnesses who can help to corroborate your account of the accident.
If you have been injured in a car accident, it is essential that you seek skilled legal representation in order to protect your rights as you attempt to recover compensation for your medical expenses and other costs.

Obtaining Witness Testimony
In cases where you believe you have been injured or wronged by another party’s negligence, it is even more important that you have additional evidence to support your claim, such as a witness testimony. If at all possible, you should secure the following contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the event:
- Telephone number
- License plate number
- Vehicle description
Even if you failed to gather contact information at the time of the accident, you may be able to obtain witness testimony by checking to see if people living or working in nearby buildings is able to help.
