What information should I collect at the scene of a car accident?

If you are involved in a car accident, it’s important to document as much as possible. If the accident involves another party, be sure to get their name, phone number, license number and insurance information. Make a note of the date, time, and location of the accident. If anyone witnessed the accident, try to document any statements they make that may be of help and get their contact information. If possible, take photos of the scene to document damage. And make sure to get a copy of the police report and of any tickets that may have been issued for the accident.
