Detailed medical records will help down the road to establish the amount of damages the victim has suffered and explain the future medical care and treatment they may need.

Additionally, following a car accident, it is important to collect evidence related to the accident, including photographs; obtain any available witness statements; obtain a police report; and take careful notes concerning everything that happened.
