Why It Is Important to Report Everything from a Virginia Car Accident Scene

Car accident scenes are chaotic. There may be things that simply don’t make sense to you, or even to the trained police investigators who come to the scene. As everyone struggles to provide care for those who have been injured in the accident, and to prevent further accidents due to the first accident, it can be challenging to connect all the dots and make sense of everything at the accident scene.

What May Be Confusing

Countless things may not make sense, and the specifics depend on what you saw at the scene of your accident. For example, it can be difficult to understand:

  • How pieces of the vehicles ended up where they did.
  • Whether some of the people at the scene saw the accident or appeared after the crash.
  • Whether a vehicle was moved after the crash.
  • Exactly how the injured people got hurt.

Therefore, if you notice an injury, a car that seems broken in a way that doesn’t make sense, or other factors, then it is important to mention them to your Warrenton car accident attorney.
