Taking photographs is one of the easiest things that you can do to help your injury case. The reason why it is so easy is that everyone these days seems to have a smartphone that is capable of taking pictures. You can take pictures of the scene of the accident, the vehicles involved, the dangerous condition that caused the accident, witnesses, visible injuries, the intersection, stop signs, crosswalks, really the options are endless.
Your media could prove liability
If a photograph is worth a thousand words then a video must be worth a million. Even more helpful to your personal injury case can be videos. Some people drive around their cars with dashcams. Dashcams do a great job of supporting a version of events. It is very hard to argue with a video. If a party attempts to argue with what happened in a video in front of a jury, the party will lose all credibility to the jury. They become inflamed and award high verdicts at trial. That is one reason why you should take video evidence. Photos can be manipulated but videos have a certain characteristic of being irrefutable evidence.
Your attorney will use the media to build a strong case
Save the photos and videos to a safe and secure area. Turn them over to your attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will know how to safely store this valuable information that could mean the difference between a successful and unsuccessful case. There is very little that can be done if a key piece of evidence is lost. So don’t just assume that the photos and videos of your accident are safe on your phone. People lose their phones frequently. People’s phones are sometimes stolen. Don’t gamble your personal injury case on evidence being saved on your phone. Make sure that your phone is backed up and saved to the “cloud”. The cloud is a great place to store evidence as it can be available from multiple sources, even if you lose your phone or laptop.
