One of the things that people should do when they have been in an accident, is to take pictures of their injuries. However, there are a lot of people who don’t know why they should do this. There are a few good reasons why you should take pictures of injuries when you have been in a car accident.
Pictures of injuries show that you were hurt in the accident
The first reason to take pictures is that they show just how badly you were hurt when you were in the accident. There are a lot of solicitors who may not be honest and who may encourage their clients to pretend that they were injured in the accident when they weren’t injured at all. However, having picture evidence of your injuries shows that you were injured because of the accident and that you are not simply claiming for injuries because you have been told to do so by a solicitor.

The second reason that you should take pictures of your injuries is because it shows that you were injured on the day of the accident, rather than another day after the accident. This is really important, because a lot of defence solicitors might try and claim that you were not injured due to the accident, but that you were injured another day following the accident.
Pictures of injuries show the extent of your injuries
The third reason that you should take pictures of injuries after an accident is because it shows the extent of your injuries from the accident. Again, this is because there are unscrupulous lawyers who might try to claim that you are making your injuries out to be more than they are. However, with the pictures, you have evidence that you have serious injuries.
These are the reasons why you should take pictures of injuries that you have suffered from an accident.
