Witnessing an Accident

If you are witness to a car accident, your independent account may be vitally important to any court case or insurance claim that may take place in the future. Once you have checked that everybody is safe and an ambulance has been called if anyone has been hurt, write down everything that you can remember about the incident, as it may be some time before any claims are settled or court proceedings are heard.

Make sure that you give your name and address to all the parties involved, as well as the police if they are in attendance.
