SCV Personal Injury Attorney | It is Important to Take Photographs of the Other Vehicle at the Scene of an Accident | The Mason Law Firm | Mason Rashtian

I recently attended mediation involving a car accident where my client was hit from behind by a careless driver.  During the mediation, the defense attorney produced photographs of defendant’s car, claiming that the accident was minor because his client’s vehicle hardly sustained any damage in the accident.

However, when my client looked at the photographs, she immediately said: “those are not the right pictures.”  The photographs were date stamped 3 weeks post accident.  By then, the defendant had repaired his car.  So, the photographs that the defense attorney was showing did not show the property damage.

Unfortunately, my client did not take photographs of the defendant’s vehicle at the scene.  If she had taken such photos, then we could prove that defendant is lying and hiding evidence.  As it currently stands, this has become a “he said versus she said” scenario on a important issue – the severity of impact.

To avoid such mishaps, it is very important to take photographs of the other vehicle while at the scene of an accident.
