Many of us know that the steps we take after a car accident are crucial. In order to get the insurance company to pay you fair and full compensation for your related injuries, you must prove to them that what caused the accident and why you are entitled to have your damages paid for. One of the best ways to protect yourself is by taking photos of the accident scene.
Car accident photos are a valuable form of evidence when it comes to proving how your accident occurred and who is responsible to pay for your injuries and other related damages.
The human memory can be foggy, especially after a traumatic event like a car accident. And while human testimonies may vary, photos are an irrefutable piece of evidence that will paint a larger picture of how the accident occurred. By having such indisputable evidence to go with your claim, your injury attorney can build a solid case for your car accident claim.
There is no such thing as too many photos, so take as many as you can! Even something that seems insignificant at the time, such as a road skid mark, can be a key piece of evidence for your attorney to prove fault. It’s recommended that you take photos of the following:
The damage to all vehicles involved in the crash
Traffic signs and other road conditions
Skid marks and road debris
The accident scene itself
The witnesses, responding officers and other drivers
Any visible injuries to the other driver
Any other aspect of the accident that might be important
Additionally, make sure that the photos have accurate timestamps. Most modern cellphones like smartphones and iPhones have this feature, so the timeline of your photos will be documented.
