Finding Evidence to Support Your Claim
Ask witnesses for their contact information as well as medical or police personnel on the scene. These witnesses can provide invaluable information and details to your attorneys.. Similarly, if you can find any closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras it can be very helpful for your case.
