“Dirty Little Secrets’ part 3 | Virginia accident injury lawyer

A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS.

You’ve heard it said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” In injury cases, a picture can also be worth a thousand dollars…even more! I always take more pictures than I need, taking pictures of everything relevant. When in doubt, take a picture. Good photographs can make a case.

A photo can say more about an accident scene than just about any other evidence you collect. It is probably the easiest way to show an adjuster or jury what really happened.

In a car accident the photos may reveal details that went unnoticed at the scene of the wreck. Often people are so upset by the accident that facts are overlooked or forgotten. It is a lot harder to argue against a photograph than a written statement. Also a photograph can help you remember things when you do have to make a statement.

Accident scenes are usually cleaned up pretty quickly so use any sort of camera you may have available. Many modern cell phones have built-in cameras now.

Photos can also be helpful in other types of personal injury cases. A slip and fall case may be strengthened if you show a photo of a hard to see spill on the floor. Also in dog bites it can be very powerful to show the damage caused by the animal bite.
