Car accident victims in Illinois make a mistake that is simple to avoid. Taking pictures of a visible car accident injury. We have all heard the expression that a picture is worth a thousand words. When it comes to getting you the most compensation and benefits, it’s no different.
One of the most common mistakes car accident victims make is failing to record, in photographic form, injuries that are noticeable. Visible bruises, cuts, abrasions and other injuries are typically visible injuries suffered by victims of a motorcycle, trucking, car or pedestrian accidents. In many instances, injuries heal without evidence of their existence. When this happens, the insurance company will not fully appreciate the extent of an accident victim’s injuries and may offer less money to settle the case.
If you prefer, our firm can have your injuries photographed by our private investigator or one of our paralegals. Hall, Rustom & Fritz provides these services free of charge to our clients. We do this to help our clients obtain the most compensation possible for their cases.
