James Law Office, LLC

Auto accidents are often harrowing experiences. Though in most cases, auto accidents don’t involve serious injuries, injuries in these accidents are still far from rare. That said, if you were hurt in an auto accident caused by another party’s negligence, there is a strong chance that you will qualify for financial compensation, however, you will need to gather and present evidence to prove your personal injury claim. One of the most useful types of evidence is pictures/videos of the accident and its aftermath. Please continue reading and reach out to a knowledgeable Darlington County, South Carolina auto accident lawyer from the James Law Office, LLC to learn more about the pictures you need to take after being involved in an auto accident of any kind.

Pictures You Need To Take After an Auto Accident

After a crash, the first thing you should do is call the police to the scene of the accident. They will write up a police report and send emergency medical services to the scene so you can receive the immediate treatment you need. That said, you should also be vigilant in photographing the scene of the accident, as we can use these pictures in a future personal injury claim. Some of the things you should photograph after an auto accident are as follows:

  • The vehicles involved: After an auto accident, your vehicle, as well as the other vehicle, will likely sustain considerable damage. Carefully photograph this damage from every angle. If you can, you should also take a step back and photograph the entire accident scene to help show the bigger picture of how the accident happened.
  • Any property involved. Often, guardrails, trees, traffic signs, and other property will also be involved in an auto accident. Take pictures of any property that was damaged as a result of the accident as well.
  • Your injuries. Not only should you photograph your injuries, but you should also take pictures of any medical devices you have to use as a result of your injuries, such as a sling, cast, or even a wheelchair.
