Taking Pictures After a Auto Accident

child car safety

Being in a car crash can be a scary experience. Its the last thing anyone wants to be in, but after being in a crash, there are some things you need to do. After making sure everyone is okay, you need to start thinking about your insurance claim. Dealing with the insurance company is the last thing anyone wants to do, but if anything for sure, it’s those insurance companies are going to want pictures. What’s even more important is getting pictures for your attorney. Getting as many pictures as possible will help get a better picture of what happen and what caused the collision.

Take pictures of nearby buildings.

Taking pictures of buildings can also help in figuring out where the crash took place, but there is another factor that can be at play. In the modern age, security cameras are getting cheaper and easier to install. Smart homes and businesses have the ability to record everything surrounding them. This can provide you with the evidence you need. A camera could have recorded the whole crash and prove the guilty party acted negligently. Once knowing what business or home was in view, your lawyer can go and ask if they happened to be recording the street that their business or home faces.

Get The Cars On Camera

The first and most important thing to take pictures of are the cars involved. Be sure to get every angle possible. Even small details can make all the difference. Your lawyer can sometimes point out these details to show that there was no way you could have been negligent. A dent in the door might show that the only possible scenario is that the other car involved was acting negligently. Remember, every detail matters, so make sure to get as many pictures of the cars involved.

Get Pictures Of Street Signs.

Did the other person ignore a stop or yield sign? Maybe they turned right on a red that had a “do not turn right on red sign.” These could be important factors in your case. However, that’s not the only reason you should take pictures of street signs. Getting pictures of street signs will help show where the crash took place. It might show that maybe the city was negligent, and the roads were not safe. Regardless of the situation, always take pictures of the street signs around you.
