Our Worcester car accident lawyer always does more for you than you may readily see after a car accident occurs. Here at Law Office of Robert W. Kovacs, Jr., we've gone to many accident scenes in Worcester and sometimes had to gain consent from our clients to go ahead and gather evidence without them. That's because we know you may have severe injuries requiring you to be immediately rushed to the hospital.
In the above scenarios, sometimes it requires a friend or family member calling us for you to get things going. With your conscious consent, we'll rush to the scene of your car accident where gathering evidence quickly can make a considerable difference in you winning compensation. While some evidence can be gathered over time, one of the most essential is taking photographs of the accident scene shortly after it occurred.
We always have a digital camera in tow, and we'll make sure photos taken are going to be done right and not so they can be interpreted ambiguously later.
Other times, you may be the one having to take the photographs if you're able to after the accident happens. What should you do to get the best possible photos if you're taking them yourself? You should follow what we always do.
Making Photos Clear
While a cell phone camera is better than nothing, the higher the pixels are on a digital camera, the better. This can help pick up textures and other details that might not show up well on a low-quality cell phone camera. You should capture the details of what your car looks like and any parts that might be lying in the road. If it's been snowing, it helps to try to brush snow off certain objects so they show up well.
Also, be sure to capture photos of the other car that ran into you.
And while it may seem garish, getting photos of yourself with any immediate injuries will go toward the proof of how extensive your injuries are. Even though we'll use your medical records later to show the extent of how those injuries could affect your life, clear photographic evidence is going to be compelling when presented to a potential jury.
Contact us here at Law Office of Robert W. Kovacs, Jr. is you've just been in a car accident here in the Worcester area. We'll be there immediately to capture photos with a high-quality digital camera so everything is archived. However, you now know what to do if situations arise where we can't be there immediately.
