Car accidents do happen with alarming frequency, no matter how safely we drive, so it makes sense to be prepared for any eventuality. If you are involved in an automobile accident in South Florida caused by the negligence of others, it is extremely important to try to gather and preserve as much evidence as possible to support your argument. If you have been involved in a car crash, take photos with your smartphone of the car you were driving or in which you were a passenger, the other vehicle and of the actual scene of the accident. If you’ve suffered injuries, take photos of the extent of those injuries. Keep in mind that sooner is better than later – a photo of the accident scene taken immediately after the collision is worth more than one taken any time later. Photos of your bruises taken as soon as possible after you were injured, along with images of the progression of the injuries will tell more than pictures of the same bruises once they have begun to heal. Going forward, make sure to save all receipts, medical records, accident reports, and any other pertinent paperwork related to the accident, as all these documents can be used to verify and validate your legal claims.
