A picture is worth a thousand words.
A thorough analysis of a slip and fall, motor vehicle accident or assault can lead to a better understanding of what happened and provides an opportunity to test the accuracy of witness accounts.
Slip and fall personal injury files often develop over a period of time and require re-creating and/or understanding the conditions as they were at the time of the incident, including:
• weather factors (for example, precipitation or freeze-thaw cycles)
• lighting conditions
• design standards
• debris and damage
Personal injury and criminal defence lawyers with clients involved in motor vehicle accidents often benefit from photos taken from the position of the drivers and witnesses to help illustrate what they could or could not see.
Photos taken by the client usually do not show the scene clearly or provide the details necessary to assist the lawyers.
For over 20 years, I have helped lawyers advance their files and achieve successful outcomes for their clients by creating a thorough permanent record of the incident scene using photographs, video, measurements, diagrams, and witness interviews.
