3 Important Reasons to Take Photos After an Accident

Posted By Uvalle Law Firm, PLLC

In the event that you are involved in a car accident, it is important to understand what actions you should take to safeguard your rights. Photographs can serve as physical evidence should you choose to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. In some cases, photographic evidence can make or break your case.

Below are three reasons why you should take pictures after you have been involved in a car crash:

  • Pictures can provide details about how the accident occurred.

Taking pictures can help a skilled attorney, law enforcement officer, or reconstruction investigator determine how the accident occurred. When taking pictures, be sure to photograph every angle when it is safe to do so. Be sure to include any images of traffic lights or signs posted within the vicinity of the collision.

  • Photos can help determine who was at fault for the collision.

If you are injured in the accident and believe another person should be held liable for the injuries you sustained, you will need to prove that the other driver should be held responsible. An experienced lawyer may be able to use photographic evidence to prove that the other driver acted recklessly, negligently, or carelessly, causing the crash and your injuries.

  • Photographs can help determine the extent of damages a victim suffered as a result of the impact.

If the collision area is free of hazards following the accident, be sure to photograph each angle of your vehicle as well as the other driver’s. A car accident attorney may be able to use the images to prove that the injuries you suffered were a direct result of the accident by examining the locations of damage to both vehicles.
