What Pictures Should I Take After a Car Accident?

There are few things more jarring than being involved in a car accident. Because they often happen with little to no warning, those who are involved sometimes freeze up in a state of shock, unsure of what to do next. For this reason, it’s critical to have a plan in place regarding what you will do, should you ever crash. One of the most important things you can do after a car accident is take clear pictures of the incident. Please continue reading and reach out to a knowledgeable Manhattan car accident attorney from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about the pictures you should take after an accident and how our legal team can help you get the compensation you deserve and need to heal.

What pictures should I take after getting involved in a car accident?

After sustaining an injury in a car accident, there are several things you should photograph to help document the incident and maximize your chances of recovering financial compensation in a personal injury claim down the road. Just some of the things you should photograph are as follows:

  • Damage to vehicles. In any car accident, there’s a high probability that more than one vehicle will sustain some damage. For this reason, after your crash, you should do what you can to clearly photograph any damage to your vehicle and the other driver’s vehicle. If you can take a step back and photograph the scene of the accident as a whole, you should do that as well.
  • Damage to property. Unfortunately, car accidents are frequently destructive to more than just cars. Guardrails, vegetation, and more can all sustain serious damage from an impact. Photograph this damage as well.
  • Your injuries. If you can, take pictures of the injuries you’ve sustained, as well as the medical equipment you have to use because of your injury, such as an arm sling.
