Those first moments after a Tucson car accident can be chaotic. The confusion, the sirens, the police and other first responders, and any number of other elements can create a sensory overload for victims. If possible, there are a few things you can do to help get the investigation into your crash off on the right foot at the scene of your crash.
First, you should asses your own physical condition and the condition of others. Your health and safety should trump all other considerations. Then, there are a few things you should do:
- Call police— They will create an accident report, and the contents of that report could be critical to determining who is at fault in your accident
- Take Pictures— They're an important record of the accident and its aftermath. These photos may be critical photographic evidence of your accident.
- Write down everything— Anything you can remember at the scene is important to record before your memory fades. Be sure to get the names and contact information of witnesses. Their eyewitness testimony may be critical to your case later.
Anything you can do to better record the scene of your accident can help the investigation. It helps to better recreate the sequence of events and should you need to seek legal action this gives you the best chance at winning justice.
