In an Iowa personal injury claim, evidence is critical. The burden of proof on the plaintiff requires that he or she establishes that the defendant was responsible in an Iowa car accident.
Photographic evidence is one type of support your Des Moines personal injury lawyer may use to argue your case in front of a jury. Pictures of an accident scene were once harder to come by because most people didn’t have a camera handy.
Modern technology has changed that with the advances in cell phone technology. Just about everyone has a camera now. At the scene of your accident, it’s important to document as much as you can through photographs if you’re physically able to do so.
Here are a few things to photograph at the scene of your Iowa car accident:
- your car and its damage;
- other vehicles;
- skid marks;
- debris; and
- injuries to yourself and others if they give you permission.
Having the presence of mind at the scene of your accident to collect photographic evidence can help your Des Moines personal injury lawyer prove your case. The photographic evidence may be one of four types of evidence to make your Iowa personal injury claim.
