Should I Take Photos of the Car Accident Scene?

Yes, definitely. Photos of the crash site help a lot in a car accident case. Of course, your injuries may prevent you from returning to the scene of the crash. In such a situation, see if a friend or family member can take photographs for you. If so, have them keep the following in mind:

  • Photograph the scene from all angles, including from high angles and low angles. Do your best to visually recreate the scene.
  • In each photo, include as many of the objects involved in the crash as possible. This means all cars, street lights, traffic lights, STOP signs, debris, and other objects.
  • Stand back and take some photos of the whole scene, including surrounding traffic and other landmarks.

Also, use a camera which will time stamp the photographs so that there is no disputing when the photos were taken.
