Every car wreck is stressful – even when the property damage is minor. When a crash causes injuries, it is easy to panic and nearly impossible to still your nerves and remain calm. It is important to remember though, that your actions in the aftermath of a collision may affect your ability to make a successful personal-injury claim.
The claims process begins well before you contact your insurance provider; it starts at the scene of the accident. You will need to collect evidence to prove negligence, liability, and damages. This evidence is particularly important if the at-fault party denies liability or if the insurance company refuses to cooperate.
Taking photographs is an excellent way to document physical injuries as well as property damage. Without proper documentation, it will be your word against theirs, with plenty of room for interpretation. A picture, however, captured details about the cause, time, date, people involved, property damage, and injuries.
