About Me

Working With Your Lawyer

About ten years ago, I was involved in a bad car accident. Another driver, who happened to be driving drunk at the time, smashed into the car I was driving. In addition to killing my daughter, the accident also left me paralyzed from the waist down. Although the case should have been cut and dry, the insurance company claimed that I was at fault. Fortunately, I worked with a lawyer who was able to fight my case for me. Without his help, I would still be paying off medical bills. I want to spread the word about the good that lawyers can do, which is why I created this website.

What Should You Photograph After A Car Accident?

If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to take pictures of the accident scene. This can be used by the insurance company to help prove liability. It can also be extremely important if someone ends up injured and files a personal injury lawsuit. The photos can help to prove why the accident occurred and who is liable. However, while most people know it is important to take photos after a car accident, they aren't really sure what they should be photographing. Here are a few of the things you should snap a picture of after a car accident. 

Both Vehicles

Following a car accident, it is important to take thorough pictures of both vehicles. When possible, get a picture of the vehicles in their resting position after the accident before they are moved. In addition to this, be sure to document any and all damage that is on the vehicles. The final resting picture and damage can be instrumental in showing who hit who or where the point of impact was. 

Road Conditions

As you take photos following a car accident, be sure to take pictures of the road. This may seem strange, but it helps to document any road conditions that may have been present that could have played a role in the accident. If the road was icy or slick, be sure to take pictures. Additionally, you want to capture any potholes or uneven pieces of road that may have affected driving conditions. 

Skid Marks

When photographing road conditions, you may notice skid marks on the road. If you notice skid marks that were likely caused by the accident you were involved in, be sure to take pictures of them. The location and length of the skid marks can show the speed a person was traveling and when they potentially hit their brakes. 

Other Hazards That May Have Existed

Lastly, be sure to take clear pictures of any other hazards that may have been present when the accident occurred. Was a stop sign hidden behind an overgrown tree? Was a street light blown out, making the road exceptionally dark? Take your camera and snap a picture. In some cases, a third party, such as the city, may be held responsible if they didn't maintain the roads, lights or signage. Taking a picture can help show why they may have some fault in the accident. 

Taking pictures after a car accident can be important if a personal injury claim needs to be filed. If you were injured in a car accident and the other party is responsible for the accident, be sure to consult with a personal injury lawyer. They can help you determine if you have a case and how to proceed with it. Contact an auto accident attorney to schedule a consultation today.
