What Information Should be Exchanged after a Car Accident?

No one plans on being involved in an accident. They typically occur without warning and the results can be devastating. The majority of car accidents are fairly easy to resolve, but some can be more problematic and require the filing of a lawsuit. If you are involved in a car accident, it is important to exchange key information with the other parties to ensure a smooth process after the accident. If issues arise when you file a claim, the information that you collect can be very helpful in proving your case.

You should exchange the following details with any other drivers involved in the accident and any passengers injured in the accident:

  • Driver’s License Numbers, Insurance details, names, phone numbers, addresses and email addresses for all registered owners of the vehicle (if different to the driver).
  • Names, phone numbers, addresses and email addresses of all witnesses of the accident
  • Time and place of accident
  • If emergency services respond police report number, officer name and badge number
  • Vehicle identification number for all vehicles involved
  • It is also important to take pictures of the damage to all vehicles following a car crash in Florida. If you are able to take photographs of the other vehicle(s) involved, do so. Most cellular phones have cameras built in. If it is safe to do so, take a picture of the accident scene prior to the vehicles being towed away. After you have sought medical care take pictures of your personal injuries resulting from the accident.
