Taking photographs of the accident scene, vehicles involved, and the surrounding area can be crucial for insurance claims and legal purposes. Visual documentation provides an accurate representation of the conditions at the time of the accident and can help support your version of events. Here are some additional steps:
Remember that photographs can be powerful evidence in case of disputes or investigations. If you are unable to take pictures yourself due to injuries or other reasons, ask someone who is not injured and present at the scene to do it on your behalf. If the police are present, they might also take photographs as part of their accident investigation.
I highly advise installing a Dash Camera that can record both inside and outside of your car. Let me share an incident that illustrates its importance. In a particular case, the vehicle damage appeared minimal at first glance. However, when my clients presented the footage from their Dash Camera, it revealed a different story. The video captured them joyfully singing inside the car, and suddenly, a significant impact occurred, followed by screams and cries. The audio and visual evidence completely transformed the perspective of the case. Having a Dash Camera can be a game-changer, providing valuable evidence and protection in various situations on the road.
The CHP and Concord Police are looking for the driver of a black sedan for a hit-and-run at about 9:45pm on Wednesday, May 31, at the intersection of Willow Pass Rd, and Diamond Blvd in Concord. The black sedan hit a bicyclist and stopped briefly for a moment before driving off on 680. The paramedics took that man to the hospital. He was last reported in critical condition.
Although this is a terribly sad situation for the cyclist and his family, they do have recourse if this gentleman has uninsured motorist coverage; and/or if he lived with someone who does, it is possible, that he would be covered in that circumstance as well.
