Top 3 Things You Can Take a Picture of for Your Claim

Top 3 Things You Can Take a Picture of for Your Claim

For any individual involved in a car accident caused by negligence, evidence is one of the most crucial components. It’s imperative in protecting you from false accusations by the responsible party’s insurance company and gives a clear idea of your claim.

And if pictures are worth a thousand words, they easily become one of the most powerful pieces of evidence you can have. To help your claim after a car accident, these are the top three things of which you want to take a picture.

1. The Overall Scene of the Accident

The scene of the accident can be traumatic for many, but for the sake of a car accident claim, it could be a powerful tool. The car accident scene shows proof regarding multiple situations that can help you back up your statement.

For instance, tire marks on the ground could be an indicator of the other party speeding and needing to slam on their brakes to slow down or stop. Also, if there are any missing traffic signals or obstructions, those may also play a factor in your claim.

2. The Damage to All Vehicles Involved

Most people simply take a picture of their own vehicle and send that off to the insurance company for review. However, having an idea of the location of damage to each vehicle may give the adjuster an idea of how the accident may have occurred.

Images of the damage to the vehicles can also help an accident reconstructionist recreate the accident using specialized technology. This can be used on your behalf to show that another party was, in fact, at fault for the collision.

3. The Visible Injuries You Sustained

One of the defenses often used by the insurance companies is to claim that the injuries you have are either pre-existing or occurred after the accident took place. While medical records can be helpful in combatting this, you can also take photos of all visible injuries you have sustained.

For instance, taking a photo immediately of broken bones, bruises, cuts and lacerations, and other visible damage can be used as part of your claim. It can also help the medical professional’s diagnosis of your injuries.

All these photos can be evidence our Houston car accident attorneys use to pursue compensation for individuals injured in negligence related accidents. At the Daspit Law Firm, your best interests are our top priority and we work hard to help you recover compensation for your damages.
