http://nashville.injuryboard.com/motor-vehicle-accidents/google-earth-for-auto-accidents.phpMy fellow personal injury law blogger, Ray Runyon, in Nashville, Tennessee, provides a great idea for personal injury attorneys (and their clients) in his blog today.
Google Earth http://earth.google.com/ allows a user to input an address anywhere in the world and then "zoom in" to get a closer view and a real photograph of an accident scene. It can also be used, like Mapquest, to get directions.
This service is free, so the cost of obtaining an aerial photograph, even for a small case, is no longer an issue.
We'll be using those here at my firm in our next arbitration... Who, after all, would question the admissibility of anything Google?
