Parking Lot Scene Inspection Photos and Instructions

Typically used by insurance companies to assess the legitimacy of a claim or to use as evidence in legal action, Parking Lot Inspections consist of verifying an accident scene. At WeGoLook, our role is to act as a third party to inspect and photograph the incident location in an unbiased manner.

Inspection Step 1: Photos

For best results, photos should be taken prior to filling out the questionnaire.

Draw Scene and Photograph: Please capture an image of a hand-drawn re-creation of the incident at the location where the accident occurred. *This will not be present on all inspections.

Parking Lot Entrance: Please capture views of the entrance to the parking lot, either from the street or from inside the parking lot. *If there are multiple entrances, the two slots may be used to show them. If there is one entrance, it can be shown from different angles.

North / East / South / West View of Scene: Please capture views of the incident location from different angles. For example, the North View should show the location from the South Side, the East View should show the location from the West side, and so on... *If the location of the incident is unverifiable, then you may show the parking lot from these angles.

Full View of Parking Lot: Please capture views of the full parking lot (or as much as possible) from separate angles. These can be taken from corners, the entrance to the property, or the entrance from the roadway. *Please take photos from whichever vantage point best shows the lot.
