Immediately following a car accident you should take some practical steps to ensure you know the identity of the driver who caused the accident and obtain as much witness evidence as possible to support how your accident happened.
A common complaint made by clients who approach me is that the driver at fault for the RTA who admits fault at the scene and indicates that any car accident claim would be paid in full at a later time denies how the accident was their fault by which time obtaining witness details is too late to verify your version of events.
No matter what the other driver says following the accident I recommend you take every step which is possible to ensure the truth wins out.
