Keep a camera in your car at all times (disposable is just fine). Take pictures of the cars, people, scene.

Very Important: Do not speak to anyone other than your doctor(s) without the advice of an attorney.  In particular, DO NOT give a statement to any insurance company, recorded or not, without the advice of an attorney.
