Getting A Little Help

A few months ago when I was involved in a bad car accident, I didn't know what to do next. In an attempt to make things right, I tried to be open and honest with lawyers and insurance agents when they called, only to be reprimanded by complete strangers. After taking a few phone calls on my own, I realized that I needed to have an advocate at my side to make things right. I contacted an attorney, who came right out to help me the next day. He listened to the details of my case, started screening my calls, and instantly reduced my stress level.

5 Things That You Should Take Pictures Of After An Auto Accident

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and this couldn't be more true when it comes to an auto accident. If you are planning on filing a claim related to your accident, it is extremely important for you to take pictures. You should do so with any camera that you have handy, including your smart phone camera, if that is what is available. These are a few things that you should take photographs of so that you can turn them over to your insurance company or your car accident attorney.

1. All Vehicles That Were Involved

Take the time to take multiple photographs of every vehicle that was involved in the accident. Along with taking pictures of any dents, scratches or other damage, you should also take pictures of the license plates and that help display the make and model of each vehicle.

2. The Road

In a lot of cases, the road can provide evidence that can help your case. For example, if there are skid marks from the other driver's car, or if there is rubble in the road that might have caused your accident, you should take photographs.

3. Nearby Road Signs

If there are any road signs near the scene of your accident, such as speed limit signs or stop signs, you should take photographs of them. Then, you can help prove that the driver should have slowed down, stopped or used caution at the time that the accident occurred.

4. Point-of-View from Witnesses' Vehicles

If you have any witnesses, you should consider positioning yourself in the area where their vehicles were at the time of the accident. Then, you can take photos of the scene "through their eyes," which can help make their testimony more believable.

5. Your Injuries

There is a good chance that your injuries will be healed before you ever go to court. Therefore, if you have any visible injuries -- such as burns, cuts or bruises -- you should take pictures of them while they are still fresh. You can also take photographs during the healing process to help get a better idea of what you have been through due to your accident.

As you probably already know, taking pictures can really help your auto accident claim. While you have your camera out, make sure that you take pictures of these five things to help ensure that you have all of the evidence that you need.
