Holding the At-Fault Driver Accountable

A copy of the police report
The other driver’s contact, insurance, and vehicle information
Any witnesses’ contact information
Copies of your medical treatment
Photos of injuries and property damage sustained at the scene
Footage from nearby traffic or security cameras
