What Information Should I Exchange with the Other Driver in an Accident

Nobody plans to be in a car accident, so you might not think about which information you need to share with the other driver in a wreck. We have created a handy printable Car Accident Checklist for you to download and print to keep in your glovebox. 

If you would like a printed version, call our office and we will give you one: 972-360-9898

Exchanging Information

When you are in an accident, get the following information from the other driver:

  • Contact information, including name, address, and phone number
  • Their insurance information, including the company, policy number, and the insurance company’s phone number
  • Their driver’s license number
  • Their license plate number

Other information to gather:

  • The police report number from the police officer
  • The badge number of the police officer
  • Witness contact information, including name and phone number
  • The date, time, and location of the accident
  • The weather and road condition at the time of the accident

The easiest way to gather a lot of this information is by taking pictures and video with your phone. Something as simple as a video of the whole accident scene might have helpful information for a personal injury lawyer to get more for your claim – things like the weather, speed limit signs, road conditions, the location of the damage on the vehicles involved, and more. It’s always best to get more information than you think you need, so get pictures of everything!

Wonderful experience from the moment of walking in, they make you feel so welcomed. The little details of even putting your name on the whiteboard welcoming you. All along the way they keep you informed on the progress, asking detailed questions to get the full picture of your individual needs. The team you're assigned, all work together to make a stressful and scary situation easy to deal with. Kelsey, Aaron and Abraham ate the best!! Thank you again 💓.

I had an awesome experience with Hudson law firm. Everyone at the office is so nice and treated me with respect and concern from day 1. They make you feel welcomed when you go into the office. In the end they were able to get me a check even though I still have a journey ahead they were able to help compensate me for some of my pain and suffering.

No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an accident, but if you do find yourself in that situation, these folks make the experience so much easier. I felt comfortable with them from my very first meeting. They even had a welcome message for me in their lobby. They are great people to work with and I am happy with the outcome.

A law firm like such is hard to find, one that cares for their clients with such passion. I worked with them for almost 2 years. He has always been friendly, professional, helpful, and over all amazing. He was patient with my silly questions. He is beyond paralegal. I will certainly recommend this firm to others,
