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.
