Take Photographs After an Automobile Accident
The importance of taking photographs after an accident cannot be stressed enough. Whether it is a motor vehicle accident, slip and fall, a dog bite, or any other type of accident, having pictures of the scene, damages, and injuries can play a vital role. Pictures of the damage to your vehicle, bruising or other injuries you may have incurred, or something that caused you to trip and fall, can be pieces of the puzzle that best support your case in demanding any compensation that could be available to you.
In this day and age, almost every cell phone has a camera option. Aside from that, many people own digital cameras or you may just want to purchase a disposable camera to take the photos immediately. Safeguard those photos in case they are needed to make a demand to an insurance company or further down the road, to present in front of a jury, if necessary. These photos could make your case by offering a visual aid to help adjusters or jurors put the pieces of the accident scenario together in their minds.
There is no way to fully prepare for an accident. An automobile accident or any other type of accident will likely unnerve and frighten even the coolest and calmest of people. There are, however, steps you can take to protect yourself in the aftermath, if necessary. For that reason, our team at The Law Offices of Marc L. Shapiro, P.A. wants to stress the importance of taking photos of an accident scene, damage, and injuries.
