Should I take Pictures of the Scene Following a Car Accident?

Pictures can be powerful evidence in a car crash case. If you are able to and you can do so safely, you should take pictures of the scene.

Make sure that you take pictures of your car and the other vehicles involved. When you’re taking those pictures, be sure to take pictures of the undercarriage of the vehicle, where there might be damage that is not immediately visible when you look at the car. You will want to take pictures from all angles, and include pictures of the license plates.

Make sure that you take pictures of the scene generally, so that a viewer can get a sense for how things looked and the position of the cars in the street or the intersection. If you can, take pictures of the licenses or IDs of the other people involved in the crash or of a witness, if the witness is willing to be contacted.
