The Louisville,Kentucky police are very busy these days. There is widespread road construction throughout Jefferson County and traffic delays and detours abound. The police simply do not have the resources to thoroughly investigate and document many Louisville and surrounding area traffic collisions. If you are involved in a Louisville car accident you must be proactive in preserving evidence. Take photographs of the damage to your vehicle and the others vehicles. Write down the names of the other persons involved in the accident. Don't assume the police will interview every witness to the crash. Get the names, if possible, of any witnesses and a current phone number to reach them. This will help your car accident lawyer who will interview them and thoroughly prepare your serious car accident case for settlement.
