Lawyers in Chatham


When we find ourselves in the midst of an accident, there can be no greater witness than the lens of a camera. Photographs provide solid evidence in a claim for personal injury. Images of the collision and pictures at the scene of an accident are a perfect way to freeze frame those crucial moments. There are no words or witnesses which could have as much impact as a photograph. Perfect when confirming weather conditions, pinpointing the exact location of your collision and clarifying the position of both vehicles. Photographic evidence can certainly back up a written statement.

Photographs at the scene of an accident

It does not matter which type of camera you use or your proficiency at taking photos, the aim is to capture that evidence and preserve it. Many of us have mobile phones which come equipped with a built in camera. If possible adjust settings so as the date and time of each image is recorded.

Take as many photographs as possible to ensure that you capture those images which serve beneficial to your personal injury lawyer. You should try and snap the following:

  • The amount of damage caused to your vehicle
  • A detailed view of the other vehicle
  • Any skid marks on the road
  • Close up shots of anything broken such as glass, parts of a vehicle etc
  • The weather on that day
  • Injuries sustained by both you, any passengers you were carrying and the other driver
  • A view of the street in both directions, also capture road markings, traffic lights and road signs in the immediate vicinity
  • You should also take a close up of the car’s licence plate
  • Shots of the vehicles interior

Use this time to snap as many images as possible. Take pictures from every angle and at varying distances. Aim to go from short range, mid-range to sweeping panoramic views. Only take photographs of the other party if you have been given permission to do so. Whilst you want to build up an accurate image of the scene, do not be tempted to move anything in order to obtain a better shot. It is vital that a crime scene remains undisturbed.
