Cameras Inside and Outside of your Vehicle
While we may assume that cameras are “everywhere” today and you may want to rely on accessing camera footage from an outside camera, that is often not an option. Camera footage from public cameras may be able to be obtained, if requested timely. Camera footage from private cameras may be able to obtained if the private company cooperates. Often, you may see a camera somewhere and it may not be recording. The cameras on most of the highway are there to check ongoing traffic conditions for reporters, not to video for events.
It is a good idea to invest in a camera to mount on your dashboard. They are reasonably inexpensive and it can serve you very well in the event of a car accident. An example that often comes out in cases is when an auto accident occurs at an intersection controlled by a traffic light. Often it is the case with these types of accidents that both parties claim to have had the green light. However, if you have a Dash Camera, you can quickly load up the footage to confirm the color of your light, the lane you were traveling in, and what was going on with the vehicles across the street. It could quickly become a vital tool in turning a denial of liability from the insurance into an acceptance of liability, and make it much easier to resolve your case. The same can be said for car accidents occurring an intersections with stop signs, you will be able to confirm that you stopped, or that the other party did not stop as required. They can be helpful for almost every single accident that you are potentially involved in.
Further, if you are the witness to an accident, you can use your footage to benefit another individual who may have been injured. Often, a third party that was recording an incident produces video proof of how the accident occurred and can turn an insurance denial into an acceptance. It is a small tool to put in your car that can have a huge impact and benefit.
