Ask an attorney

Does having 3 documented witnesses to injuries and negligence that are backed with times, dates, and location help with a neglect and personal injury case, or do I need to stop and take a picture while injuries are happening to me and taking place in real time?

Answered by Enjuris Editors:

It’s always good to have photographs of your injuries as close to the date that the injuries were sustained as possible. In most cases, people aren’t able to take photographs of serious injuries while they are being sustained. In your case, having witnesses and time-stamped photographs of your injuries should certainly help your claim.
