Photographs at the Scene
The Value of Photographs
An insurance company cannot contradict photographs. They may disagree with
how you say an accident happened, or how badly you were injured, but they
cannot deny what was in your photograph. When you take a picture of the
surrounding circumstances in the grocery store, you can show the adjuster
in dramatic fashion that your eyes were attracted away from the floor.
Photographs show things better than you can describe them. They reveal
details that a person may not notice at first, or at all.
Carefully examine your photos and you will usually observe things that you
had not noticed at the time. Best of all, they preserve the scene, the
evidence and visual proof of injuries, even though our memories will change
all of that over time. Consider the preservation of an accident scene
before the other party has time to change things.
When you present your photos, they help to increase the value of your claim
because they let the insurance adjuster know that you have developed your
claim in an organized and thoughtful manner.
