Gathering Evidence After a Car Accident
If you sustain injuries or if a loved one
suffers injuries or
dies in an accident, you can help your case if you are able to start collecting evidence prior
to speaking to a lawyer.
If your injuries permit you to do so after the accident, you should:
- Photograph the vehicles involved in the wreck, at the scene if possible
- Photograph any injuries you have
- Photograph the scene of the accident, including the roadway and surrounding
areas, as soon as possible after the accident
- Write down the names and contact information of any witnesses, as well
as any statement the witness makes about what happened
- Start a journal of your recovery to keep track of how the crash has affected
your life, both physically and emotionally
Once you contact your
Cincinnati personal injury attorneys at The Moore Law Firm, we will gather additional evidence, including:
- Further photographic evidence
- Formal witness statements
- Police, fire and EMS reports
- Medical records
- Measurements of the accident scene
- Expert witness testimony and evaluations
- Accident reconstruction reports
- Evidence of past and future income
In An Accident With a Truck?
In the event that it was a
collision with a commercial truck, the following pieces of evidence are critical:
- Trucking industry documentation of maintenance, history and schedules
- The truck driver’s employee file, including information about training,
licenses, and past infractions
- Information about the trucking company, including regulation compliance

reasons, however, are directly related to careless actions taken by the
driver. In fact, a number of them are even unlawful and warrant a traffic
offense. Speak with a knowledgeable lawyer if you have been involved any
