In a car accident it is important to take several detailed and clear photographs after the accident to support your personal injury case or insurance claim.
Pictures show an accurate and indisputable portrayal of the severity of your car accident, the extent of your injuries, and possibly the causes of the crash. Taking photos for evidence will help you defend yourself should false claims be made against you by others involved in the accident.
How to Take Car Accident Photos
Following a car accident, take as many pictures as possible related to the accident. If you are unable to take photos, find someone you trust to do it.
- Take more pictures than you think you need.
- Take pictures of your injuries.
- Take pictures of property damage.
- Document nearby traffic signs.
- Photograph witnesses, police officers, and the other driver.
- Take Photos of the surrounding scene.
- Photos of debris on the road related to the accident.
- Make sure the time/date stamp on your photos is correct.
- Check your photographs to make sure they are not blurry.
What Happens When You Do Not Take Photos?
If you do not take photos, the insurance company representing the at-fault driver may dispute how the accident happened and who is responsible. It may come down to your word against that of the other driver.
