What Pictures Should I Take After a Car Accident?

Car accidents happen frequently in the Tampa Bay area. If you are involved in a crash, we highly recommend that you make it a priority to take photos of the crash scene. Having photographic evidence will prove to be extremely valuable to you at a later date as you pursue your accident claim.
The benefits of taking photos of an accident scene:

  • Photos help to prove fault
  • Photos prove damage
  • Photo evidence is difficult to dispute

Once everyone is safe, we recommend taking photos of your vehicle, other vehicles involved in the accident, the scene where the accident occurred, and your injuries.

4 Tips When Taking Pictures of an Accident

  • Be sure to take photos of all the cars involved in the accident, not just your own.
  • Capture photos from multiple angles. Close-up shots also work well to show the extent of the damage.
  • Don’t forget to take pictures of any injuries. Include shots of any redness or marks from your seat belt that will prove you were wearing it at the time of the accident.
  • Include photos that highlight the angles which the vehicles collided, skid marks or lack of skid marks, positioning on the roadway, traffic signs, and any other pertinent details.

Protect Yourself From A Claim Dispute

Photos can tell the story of how the crash happened. They will be crucial evidence if the at-fault driver denies liability or if the insurance company disputes your claim.

  • Photos of property damage can demonstrate the severity of the crash.
  • Medical records alone may not always be enough to tie your injuries to the collision. Photos of your injuries immediately after the crash can further strengthen your claim.

After an auto accident, things can get so hectic that you’ll probably have a hard time thinking straight. Making a mistake such as not taking photos can cost you later down the road.
