My car is damaged – should I take pictures?

If you’ve been in a car accident in Washington state, the best way to document the damage to your vehicle is by taking photos.  Photos provide evidence that can help prove who was at fault in an accident.  In addition, photographic documentation can protect you from insurance fraud and ensure the accuracy of the police report.  When taking photos after an accident, include the injured people, the area where the crash occurred, and both wide and close-up angles of damaged vehicles.  To increase your chances of getting a good settlement, always make it a priority to take photos after you’ve been involved in an accident.
