The NYPD will no longer be responding to scene of an auto collision that they consider to be property damage only. This means those who sustain injuries that do not require immediate hospitalization or suffer only property damage as a result of a collision are on their own. Here are some tips that can help you protect yourself:
– Take a picture of the other driver’s license, registration and plate number. Pictures ensure that you do not get a number wrong while writing it down, which can happen when you have been shaken up by a collision.
– Take down the time of the incident.
– Take down the location of the incident, including the roadway you are on and the closest intersecting street. You can also take down the address of the nearest home or business.
– Take pictures of the property damage to both vehicles.
Then, when you get home, call Ardito Law Firm, P.C. and we will take care of the rest! Remember, help is always just a phone call away!
