If you are involved in a
car accident that was not your fault, dash camera footage has been proven to be an
excellent source of evidence in an insurance claim or
personal injury lawsuit. The footage would effectively prove that you were not at fault
and would also help demonstrate how the car accident resulted in your injuries.
Sometimes photographs of the damage to the vehicles involved fail to show
the full impact of the collision. By contrast, video evidence will record
all of the events leading up to the crash.
Additionally, in more serious accidents, people are not always able to
take pictures of the scene of the crash or the cars involved. If you have
a dash cam, you will always have a video of what occurred, whether or
not you are severely injured or not.
If, however, you are at fault, it can be also harmful to your case. Your
dash cam footage may be considered discoverable in a lawsuit, meaning
that the other party may have access to it and use it as evidence against you.
Law Office of James M. Stanley, dash camera footage has proven to be extremely helpful for our clients.
Several of our clients with dash cameras installed in their vehicles have
provided us with their footage to help us prove that they were not at
fault and how forceful the impact was.
It is particularly helpful in cases where liability is difficult to prove.
For instance, video evidence can determine who ran the red light or who
changed lanes into whom.
Video evidence is important with regard to negotiations with the insurance
adjuster. In most cases involving dash cam footage, the settlement offers
are substantially higher when video evidence is available.
