Why are photographs worth everything to your accident case? As cliche as it may be, a picture is worth a thousand words. Photographs are important because each is able to accurately portray immediate injury. This captures the pain, the scene, the depth of the damage, etc...that would otherwise be gone because you healed, had surgery, got your car fixed, received treatment and so on. Having such photos, should your claim go to trial, also provides the jury an opportunity to go back to the moment with you.
