The 3 Most Important Things You Should Photograph After an Auto Accident
1. Your Injuries: If you don’t have documentation of your injuries, they don’t exist. The best way of documenting your injuries is through your medical records, but photographs are a great back-up. Plus, if your doctor leaves out part of your injuries in the records, you can always show the pictures.
2. The Vehicles Involved in the Collision: This serves multiple purposes other than just showing that your car was damaged. Photographs are often used to show that the other driver was at fault. In addition, they can show the severity of the crash, which in turn shows how severe you were injured.
3. The Layout of the Street: This is for the jurors. Pictures help provide context to the situation. Don’t leave it to the jury to imagine the layout of the streets. You want them to focus on your case, not daydreaming.
BONUS: Make a video. This will help put your photographs into context with regards to the weather, the positioning of the vehicles, and the severity of the injuries. Don’t moderate the video because what you say WILL be used against you.
