Being involved in a serious accident or car crash will very likely put an individual in the hosptial, sometimes for an extended period of time. It can be a good idea to document one’s experience in the hospital for personal injury case purposes.
Video and Photography in the Hospital
A picture is worth a thousand words. However, a video is often worth a thousand more. Capturing such experiences as being rolled over in a hospital bed, having to eat through a straw, and simply dealing with stand-up xrays, are painful experiences that are difficult to put into words later on. Having such experiences videotaped is a good way to demonstrate those experiences without having to explain them oneself, and in a visually captivating way. Where video is not accessible, photography is also a good option.
The Hospital May have You Sign a Release
Depending on the hospital you find yourself in, it may require that you grant permission to the person filming or photographing you to do so, and ask that you release the hospital from any liability associated with such videos or photographs.
