Tips on Taking Pictures After an Auto Accident

Tips on Taking Pictures After an Auto Accident

Posted By The Weinstein Firm, LLC || 18-May-2016

One of the most important aspects of documenting a car accident is taking pictures. Thanks to modern technological advancement, our cellphones are now equipped with cameras, making the process much easier than before. Having photographic evidence of your accident can help you successfully recover the compensation you desire, especially if you suffered any major injuries. Pictures offer visual details about how the accident occurred, as well as which person was at fault.

The following are tips for taking photographs after a car accident transpired in Atlanta:

  • Take photos immediately after the accident. However, first check to see if you or your passengers have sustained any significant injuries which require medical attention.
  • Take as many photographs as possible. When it comes to taking pictures, do not limit yourself. Make pictures of both cars (interior and exterior), the damages, debris on the road, injuries, witnesses on the scene, police officers, street signs and stoplights, as well as weather and road conditions.
  • Document different angles. Typically, people take one picture of a certain part of the accident scene and then they move on to the next. Instead, take multiple pictures of the same thing from various angles. When looking back at the photographs, perhaps you may overlook something that you hadn’t noticed before.
  • Document your injuries. Not only should you take pictures of your injuries at the scene of the accident, but also throughout the progression of the recovery process. Having proof of the extent of your injuries can visually demonstrate how hard it is to overcome the injuries you sustained and how it prevents you from working.
