A common question that comes to mind when we’ve been in a car wreck is, “Should I take pictures of my vehicle?”
The simple answer is yes.
Take them as early as you can, and as many pictures as you possibly can.
Stay safe when taking pictures, however.
Several years ago, it would have been unusual if someone had a disposable camera in their car to take pictures.
Nowadays, everyone has a smartphone with a camera.
You may be wondering, “Why is it so important to take pictures?”
Pictures can be critical to showing the damage to your car.
Pictures can show the extent of the damage, and where the damage to the car is. This can be very helpful in showing that it is reasonable that you suffered injuries.
As they say, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Taking video of the damage is important also.
This is crucial to do when it comes to dealing with the insurance company, or if it comes to a lawsuit when you’re dealing with the other side.
Because the other side could deny that they caused any serious damage to your car.
However, if you have those pictures and videos of your car, then they can’t really deny the evidence.
You can look at them and say, “I have proof of the damage before my car was fixed.”
Save your pictures and videos in multiple places such as your phone, computer, and in the cloud.
You could even put them on a DVD.
With today’s technology, there are plenty of different places to save your pictures and videos.
It’s important to have them in different places.
If you saved the pictures to your computer, you’ll be okay if your phone dies.
If you put your pictures on a DVD or in the cloud, then you’ll be okay if your computer crashes.
It’s always a good idea to have multiple sources for your evidence.
We hope that this has been helpful for you.
