While eyewitness accounts can help, you don’t have to have eyewitnesses to have a valid claim. An experienced car accident lawyer can use crash scene photos, traffic camera footage, police accident reports, and other evidence to prove your case and help you seek compensation for your injuries.

If you are involved in a car crash, and there are no witnesses nearby, take plenty of photos at the crash scene. Take pictures of vehicle damage, your visible injuries, traffic signs, debris or skid marks on the road, and weather conditions. You should also write down what happened and provide as much detail as you can remember.
