Most people think of a motor vehicle accident in terms of the individual costs, both financial and emotional. When an accident results in a fatality, the individual costs are even higher.

Information You Need to Document After an Accident

Even if you only suffer minor injuries, being in an accident can definitely shake you up. Documenting certain things after you've been involved in a car crash can help you later if you decide to pursue a claim for injuries suffered as a result of the accident. Information you collect can also help you with any insurance claim you plan to file.
