Should I write down witness information?

Yep. It’s smart to think about witnesses—not everybody does. Many people assume that the police officer who investigates the accident will copy down the names and contact information for all witnesses, but that doesn’t always happen.

Sometimes, witnesses stop on the scene to see if anyone is hurt and needs help, or to make sure the true story gets told. But if those witnesses leave before the police officer arrives, or if the police officer forgets to write their name and contact information down in the police report, the names of those witnesses can be lost for good. (We have handled cases where this happened.) If there is any question as to who is at fault for a car wreck, it is a smart idea to write down the names and contact information for any witnesses.
