They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a picture -- or even better, multiple pictures -- can certainly be helpful if you file a personal injury case after a motorcycle accident. These are a few things that you should take photographs of if at all possible. Then, turn these pictures over to your personal injury attorney to help your case as much as possible.
1. Your Visible Injuries
Although all injuries certainly are not visible, motorcycle accidents can leave injuries that can easily be seen. These cases can be drug out for a long time, and your injuries might have started to heal before you ever have a chance to have your day in court. Therefore, taking pictures of any burns, scrapes, scratches or other visible injuries after your motorcycle accident can be smart. In addition, you'll want to gather up any medical documents that you have or will receive while seeking treatment for your injuries. This helps prove non-visible injuries and can provide additional proof and information about visible injuries that you might have taken pictures of.
2. Your Clothing
Did you know that it's a good idea to keep your clothing and helmet after a motorcycle accident? Taking pictures of these things can help provide a clearer picture of what happened. For example, a damaged motorcycle helmet can help prove that your head might have been injured, and torn clothing can also help provide proof of just how serious the accident really was. Your attorney may also ask for your clothing and helmet themselves for additional proof.
3. Your Motorcycle
You'll want to take pictures of your motorcycle from all angles so that you can prove the damage. This is important for a couple of reasons; first of all, showing the poor condition of your bike after the accident can help prove that the accident was as serious as you say it was. Plus, you'll want proof of the type of motorcycle that you were riding and the damage that was done to it to help ensure that your bike is either repaired or replaced after the accident.
If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you probably have a lot on your mind. However, it's smart to take the time to take pictures of these three things -- as well as anything else that you think might be relevant to your case -- so that you can provide ample evidence to your attorney. This can help your motorcycle accident attorney do as much for you as possible when handling your case.Share

Hi, my name is Sally. I was living a pretty average, uneventful life until I had an accident. At that point, my life become more stressful and painful than I could have ever imagined. Sadly, my accident happened on private property, and it could have been prevented if the owner of the property had kept up with his shoveling. For months, I missed work, suffered through constant pain and become more and more depressed. Finally, a friend referred me to an accident and injury lawyer, and she showed me how to get the compensation that I deserved. I don't want to see anyone else suffer like I did, and because of that, I decided to create this blog. Here, I hope anyone who has been injured can find the information they need to get fully compensated and regain their lives. Enjoy your reading and thanks for stopping by!
