Perhaps the most common and most popular form of evidence for any compensation claim is the use of photographs. Taken on a camera or a mobile phone photographs can sometimes be the success or failure of a compensation claim.
Solicitors in Westhill say that pictures really do speak 1000 words but it depends what they are of on how those words are interpreted. No matter what the accident was a photograph can tell a lot about what happened at the time of the accident.
Looking at the accident from a different angle
Depending on who took the photographs of the accident you could find that you can see the accident from a different angle. If a witness took the photograph it will show something different than if the injured party took the photograph.
By having photographs of different views of the accident different details can come to light revealing how the accident happened and maybe more importantly, why it happened. Having another angle to look at could show any ailments to the second vehicle in a car crash such as tyres which may not be roadworthy.
Having access to these photographs is something that solicitors in Westhill feel will be beneficial to any case.
Solicitors in Westhill and photographs from another source
In addition to having photographs from those involved in the accident solicitors in Westhill will also have the resources to obtain photographs taken by emergency services and possibly CCTV from the local area.
The police and other emergency services take photographs for various different reasons and can sometimes make the difference in how successful a compensation claim is. As well having photographs of the accident the services also have the equipment to zoom in and crop around anything interesting in those pictures.
