Photo Tips After a Truck Accident in Homestead

If you’ve been in a trucking collision in Homestead or anywhere in Southern Florida, you’ll need to start documenting the evidence right away. Gathering evidence helps you prove your claim and can help you secure fair compensation for your damages and losses.

One of the basic pieces of evidence you’ll want to gather right away is photographic proof. You may want to carry an inexpensive camera in your car – just in case – or you can even take photos with your camera phone. When gathering pictures, you will want to:

1) Take more photos than you think you need, from multiple angles.

There’s really no such thing as taking too many photos. Try to get multiple angles or even video, using the highest quality setting on your camera or phone so all details are visible. Zoom in on any damages or any areas that seem important. Consider lighting as well. If you are in a poorly-lit area, use a flash or setting that allows details to shine through. Check the photos as you go, to make sure they are capturing lots of detail without glare.

2) Take photos of your own vehicle and the other vehicle.

Take photos of any damages close up and take images of the car from a short distance away to show how the car came to rest after the collision. Take plenty of photos of the other car, including close-ups of damage and point of impact. Include photos of license plates and registration numbers.

3) Photos of your injuries.

Create a series of photos showing your injuries over time. Include clear close-ups of serious injuries so you can help establish the nature of each injury.

4) Take photos at the scene.

You can also return to the scene after the accident to take photos if you are rushed to the hospital and cannot remain at the site to take photos.

Always focus on taking the sharpest and clearest photos you can. You will especially want to take photos of anything that could be a clue as to what caused the accident. A sharp turn, missing traffic signs, slick roads, and tire marks on the road can all be a clue.

What can you do once you have your selection of photos? You’ll want to keep them and consult with a personal injury attorney in Homestead or your community. An attorney can review the evidence and can help you understand how you can use the photos to strengthen your claim.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
