If you’ve been injured in any type of an accident were fault will become an issue it is important to begin preserving evidence as soon as possible. Your cell phone camera becomes the proper tool for that purpose. This is important whether or not the accident involved motor vehicles, a slip and fall, or is any other type of accident. The conditions which caused the accident will change and can move quickly and without notice. This is particularly true if you slipped on a substance and it becomes important to establish how long the floor has been wet.
If possible, you should take advantage of the camera in your cell phone to begin to photographically preserve the evidence. Take as many pictures as you can. After a car accident, take pictures of the damage to all of the vehicles. If you have tripped and fallen, capture a photo of the item which caused the trip. Photographs of skid marks would be helpful also. The old saying that “a picture is worth 1000 words,” is never more accurate than in helping your attorney prove that the accident was caused by the negligence of someone else.
If your injury is something which a photograph can depict, taking photographs of your injuries is also very helpful. This will help establish the nature and extent of the injury and will ultimately help the jury appreciate the pain and suffering that you suffered from. We have the technology to preserve photographic evidence that can be very important at a later date to help prove fault and damages. Use your cell phone and help your case. It could be the difference between winning and losing.
