If you've ever been tangled in a car accident, you're probably aware of the fact that having as much documentation as possible is never a bad thing. Your insurance company is investigating the incident on your behalf. Of course, this is doubly so for your attorney.

Logically, it behooves you to provide them with anything that may help prove the negligence of the other party.

How will taking pictures help my case?

Taking pictures of what occurred at the accident will recreate the scene for both parties involved. Properly taken photographs have the potential to retell the story of what happened. In addition, reports and spoken words can be interpreted differently depending on the insurance company.

Your photos, on the other hand, are concrete proof of what you're reporting. A picture is worth a thousand words.

How do I take proper photos?

  • To start with, it's important to take as many photos as you can of the accident scene. Never take just one photo of something and move on. Make sure to have many different angles photographed as well.
  • If any injuries or vehicle damage occurred during the accident, make sure that they are displayed clearly. Take pictures of the roadside for either broken glass or skid marks.
  • The area around the accident should be photographed as well. It's also advised to photograph any traffic signals in the area. This is especially true for stop signs, traffic lights, and yield signals.
  • Ideally if a first responder such as an ambulance or the police. is at the scene at the accident, photograph them as well. All photos taken at the accident scene should be date and timestamped.

In Conclusion

Once again, having as concrete a case will aid both your attorney and insurance company.

Having properly taken photographs of the accident will give you a near incontestable account of what happened. Taken in the right place, these photos can easily help to prove a negligent driver.
