Why Taking Photos After a Car Accident is Important

Posted By Law Offices of Russ E. Robbins || 19-Feb-2016

A car accident can be a frustrating and overwhelming experience. It may be difficult to think clearly and logically at the scene, or even a few days or weeks after. However, it’s imperative to take immediate action after a crash. By gathering the necessary evidence early in the process, it can help you recover your entitled compensation.

Having photographic evidence could essentially determine the outcome of your claim. Photos provide visual details about how the accident transpired, who was at fault and the damages or injuries sustained as a result.

The following are tips for taking photos of a car accident scene in Florida:

  • Immediately take photos after the accident
    • Once you check to see if you sustained any serious injuries or if you need medical attention, it’s best to start taking pictures.
  • Take as many pictures as you can
    • There’s no limit to how many photos you can take at the scene. This includes pictures of the cars, the damage the accident caused, injuries sustained, the people at the scene, weather conditions, skid marks, police officers, the interior of your vehicle, the traffic signs and stoplights, debris on the road, etc. You never know what you may discover looking back at these photos at a later time.
  • Shoot from various angles
    • Don’t use this opportunity to take only one photo of multiple things relating to the accident. Instead, take numerous photos of the same thing from different angles.
  • Record your injuries
    • Earlier we mentioned to take photos of your injuries. However, don’t forget to take pictures while you recover in order to provide proof the extent of harm suffered from the accident. You could demonstrate how difficult it is to overcome your injuries, how it may prevent you from working and show why ongoing medical treatment is necessary.
