Should I Take Pictures and Keep a Journal?
Yes. Take as many pictures of your damaged vehicle as possible. The best pictures will document the scene of the accident right after it happened. Make sure to take pictures of all damage to your vehicle. Additionally, take pictures of your injures, bruises, and your treatment. Taking and keeping proper pictures is essential to properly remembering and presenting how the accident occurred and all the damage the accident caused.
If you have the ability, also take and keep video. If pictures are worth 1,000 words, then video is worth 1,000 pictures.
Additionally, keep a journal or at least notations on your daily planner about your medical treatment. Write down your doctors appointments and what the doctors said. Write down your experience with your treatment. Write down your pain level and write down anything you could not do because of your injuries.
Making and keeping proper documentation will be invaluable to presenting your case.
