Photographing Your Dallas Construction Accident

Photographing Your Dallas Construction AccidentIf you are a construction worker, or have a loved one that works in construction, you have firsthand knowledge of the dangers the job sites present. Thousands of Texas construction workers are injured every year on the job. Worse yet, there are over a hundred deaths every year in Texas due to construction site accidents.

If you have been injured on a construction site in Dallas, it is important to know that you may be entitled to compensation. After an accident, it is critical to gather the evidence needed for your attorney to solidify your case. A great way to provide your attorney with solid evidence is to take pictures. Most people carry cell phones with cameras in them. This can be used to take the pictures if a camera is not handy.

Tips for photographing your Dallas construction accident

  • Take multiple pictures—Take plenty of pictures. This will allow you to go back later with your attorney and pick from a variety of shots. A picture may look different on a small phone screen than it will on a computer screen later.
  • Photograph what caused the accident—Take detailed pictures of what caused the accident. Be sure to take pictures of the actual cause of the accident along with the surrounding areas to show what led to the accident.
  • Take pictures from multiple angles and distances—Take pictures from up close to the scene of the accident, and far away shots showing the accident and as much of the construction site as possible. Also take the pictures from multiple angles to allow different perspectives of the scene.
