There are a number of ways in which elevated aerial photography can be used to evaluate legal issues.
Accident Insurance Claims.
Telescopic mast photography of accident sites can be used to convey detailed information about the scene from an elevated view at varying angle heights. Together with witness statements aerial photographs can help to provide an overall picture to support the validity of many motor insurance claims or prosecutions. Provision of a photographic record of the scene can provide a critical negotiation tool to enable early settlement and can even be carried out some time after the event to highlight, for example, ongoing road layout issues.
Building / Roof Insurance Claims
Elevated Aerial Photography can produce a safer, faster and more cost effective method of obtaining close up photographs or video of hard to reach parts of buildings, such as the roof. This can eliminate the need for ladders, scaffolding or costly machinery to provide visual evidence of any structural damage or repair work necessary while minimizing the health and safety issues of moving around on potentially unstable roofs. The camera can be zoomed in remotely to any area of the roof to provide details of damaged regions.
Much safer, quicker and cheaper than erecting scaffolding or climbing ladders and crawling across tiles, our equipment can produce close-up still pictures or video images to provide a detailed inspection record of roofs, with photographic evidence of any damage or repair work necessary provided on CD or prints for analysis. It is also well worth considering keeping up-to-date images of your property should you ever come across a "before and after" scenario.
Elevated images provide detail often lacking from traditional aerial pictures, and are ideal to assist in resolving boundary disputes. Pictures can be viewed on a monitor, projected onto a big screen or distributed as prints.
