In almost any personal injury case, a camera can help provide clues to who was at fault, document and preserve evidence, and show damages and injuries as they appeared at the time of the incident. Here is how a camera phone helped two other recent Long Island accident cases:
- A woman tripped on a broken tile at the mall and broke her ankle. The pictures she snapped at the scene preserved the evidence, since the tile was fixed soon after. She ended up getting a large settlement because her photos showed a very worn out floor with several cracks and broken tiles that the owners should have known needed repair.
- A car accident victim takes pictures at the scene of the two cars immediately after the crash. Her pictures of the car accident scene, which helped her win a large settlement, showed that the other driver had a stop sign. She was also able to capture the damage to her car and pictures of her own injuries.
