If you have been in a car accident that was not your own fault then you may be eligible to make a claim and seek cash compensation for any injuries and damages which you have suffered as a result of the car accident. To do this you will need to be able to prove that the accident was not your own fault but the fault of another driver. Sometimes this is proven very simply other times it can be more difficult. This is why if you are injured in a car accident you could really benefit from taking some car accident photos which can be used as evidence.
Car accident photos
Taking car accident photos is not always the first thing that springs to mind after suffering a car accident. However taking car accident photos can be a real benefit to your case when it comes to proving that you were not at fault and not to blame for the accident. Many people know to obtain insurance details and call the emergency services following a car accident however, in the aftermath of an accident other factors, such as car accident photos, can be forgotten that are just as important.
As well as speaking to witnesses who have seen the car accident you must also remember to collect their names, addresses and contact numbers. This is so they can be called upon at a later date to back up your version of events. If possible it is also very important to take time out of the hustle and bustle and take some car accident photos to get photographic proof of the incident.
Car accident photos can be taken using any type of camera, whether you have an old unused disposable in the boot of your car or you opt to use your smart phone. Get a shot of the overall scene, but more specifically take photographs of damage done to your car, and any injuries you and your passengers have suffered.
It is handy for all drivers to keep a photograph of their car on their phone or at home. Recent shots of your vehicle intact will provide a good comparison to any photographs taken at the scene of the collision.
