Is Obtaining Police Photographs After an Accident Difficult?

Is Obtaining Police Photographs After an Accident Difficult? One of the ways that we work to build value in our client’s case is to perform a superior investigation into the facts of the car accident. That means obtaining the evidence that the police recorded or obtained in the course of their investigation into the wreck. Usually, police officers have the first opportunity to photograph vehicles and download data from the black boxes of vehicles involved in crashes. This is a template that we use in obtaining police photographs after an accident, as well as electronic/digital downloaded data from vehicles involved in a car wreck:
