Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words, and that is often very true at the scene of an Orange County motorcycle accident. Thorough documentation may be the key to your ability to successfully pursue a personal injury lawsuit settlement later on, and photographs can be an easy and powerful way to start creating a record of what happened.
Documenting Your Orange County Motorcycle Accident with Photos
If you are able, and if you have a camera or camera phone available to you at the scene of the accident, here are some easy ways to document your accident in photos:
- Take pictures of all vehicles involved in the accident, including the license plate, vehicle identification number (VIN), and any damage.
- Take pictures to document your own injuries.
- Take a picture of the driver’s license, insurance cards, and registration for any drivers involved.
- Take pictures of the scene of the accident, including any pertinent weather conditions, posted signs, damaged roadways, or other contributing factors.
Along with your photos of the accident scene and the damage to yourself and your bike, be sure to also take the time to write down your account of what happened before, during, and after the accident, along with the names and contact information for the witnesses and other motorists involved.
