The Importance of Photos in a Car Wreck Claim.

I want to share with you the importance of photos in your case. I’m going to give you a couple of quick examples, one a fall and one a car crash collision. Sometime after being injured, both of our clients came to realize, after initial medical treatment and being referred to specialists, that their injuries were serious injuries. And at the time of these injuries, the time of the fall, the time of the car crash, they didn’t seem to be that bad and our clients hoped they would get better, which many people do, but they didn’t.

One client was injured by stepping in a hole that should not have been there. The other was injured in a rear end car crash. Our client who fell did not get a picture of the hole, which is now covered up. Our client who was rear ended did not get a picture of the car of the other driver or his tag number. The at-fault driver took off, never to be found again. The bumper of the at-fault driver’s car was not completely off. The crash was so hard that it hit the tow hitch of our guy, so it didn’t do a tremendous amount of damage to his car. So there, a picture would have been very, very helpful.

On the fall, the hole was semi-hidden, but we didn’t have anything but the testimony of our client to prove that. A picture would have been extremely helpful. With no pictures, it’s a harder task to explain how deep and hidden the hole was or how bad the other car, at-fault car, was crushed. A picture is worth a thousand words and seeing is believing or true when you’re injured by someone else. You don’t even have to talk. They just see it, case closed.
