When it comes to documenting a car accident, there is no better form of proof than photographs. We are fortunate enough to live in a time where our technology is advanced enough to have cameras that are equipped with our cell phones. When you have pictures that detail the events of the accident, including any serious injuries you have sustained, an experienced and skillful lawyer will be able to use it as evidence in order to recover the compensation you deserve.
Here are some tips for taking pictures after a car accident occurs in New Orleans:
- Check for any injuries. Before grabbing your cell phone or camera to document the incident, it’s important to check yourself and your passengers for any significant injuries that require immediate medical attention.
- Take as many pictures as you can. If memory space permits, don’t hold back when it comes to documenting as much as possible. Make sure you take pictures of both cars (exterior and interior) including the damage sustained, road and weather conditions, stoplights and street signs, witnesses on the scene, as well as skid marks on the road.
- Take pictures from various angles. We often only take one picture of a particular part of the scene and then move on to the next part. However, taking multiple photographs of the same thing from different angles can help you get the most complete picture of the accident.
- Record the healing progress of any injuries. Document the injuries you suffered at the scene of the accident, as well as the throughout the recovery process to demonstrate the severity of the injuries.
