Value of Forensic Documentation

 

The Value of Professional Photo/Video Documentation as a Forensic Tool

 

WHAT THE FORENSIC PHOTO/VIDEO PROFESSIONAL BRINGS TO THE INVESTIGATION:

  • Professional training, equipment, attention to detail, patience and mental focus required to collect superior quality high resolution images.

  • Proper concentration on the nuances of image capture such as scale, depth of field, shooting angle, lighting, glare, pace of camera movement and overall context.

  • Quick collection of massive volumes of data where opportunity to collect is time sensitive.

  • Training in forensic protocol required to collect visual evidence on an insurance damage loss, construction defect site and any other litigation claim or case.

 

  WHY USE A PROFESSIONAL FORENSIC PHOTOGRAPHER

  • Allows the full attention of a forensic expert to concentrate on the investigation at hand.
  • Allows the preservation of high quality images enhance opportunities for future in-depth data analysis.
  • Allows information sharing with other experts not present and can be streamed in real time.

  • Enables the forensic expert to maximize opportunities to collect time sensitive data.

 

CATEGORIES FOR WHICH A FORENSIC PHOTO/VIDEO PROFESSIONAL SHOULD ALWAYS BE CONSIDERED:

  • Large, complex and high value projects with massive amounts of data to collect.
  • Time sensitive matters where critical data collection is possible for short periods.

  • Intrusive testing during cause and origin investigations or construction defect claims.

  • Investigations that have loss recovery or subrogation potential.

  • Matters where potentially responsible parties cannot be present.

  • Investigations where a future disagreement between parties is likely.
