Can a Dash Cam Help Prove Who Was at Fault for My Florida Collision?
At the Law Offices of Keith Bregoff, our Vero Beach personal injury attorney knows how frustrating it is for our clients to know they were hurt in a collision with a negligent driver, but are not able to prove it.
One way to help substantiate your side of the story and prove liability in a civil lawsuit is for drivers to install dash cams on their vehicles.
Doing so is entirely legal to operate while driving in Florida, and it may help provide the evidence you need to pursue a claim.
How Can a Dash Cam Help Prove an Accident Was Not My Fault?
Personal injury claims rely on evidence from the crash scene to help prove our cases.
Here is why: The negligent driver’s insurance company is going to dispute their policyholder was at fault – even when they were clearly reckless in causing the crash.
Dashcam footage can become a valuable piece of evidence that could strengthen your claim, simply by showing the other driver caused the collision to occur, without it becoming a battle of your word against theirs.
The dash camera can verify your story and reveal exactly what happened.
This is especially true if you were the victim of a hit-and-run accident, so you can identify and locate the driver who is liable for your collision and its damages.
Dashboard Cameras May Help Accelerate Your Personal Injury Claim in Florida
Video footage is incredibly convincing and impactful because it reveals the true events that took place.
This is helpful in a couple of ways. It proves you did not cause the collision, which is something you are going to have to show to shift liability to the negligent driver.
With access to the full events leading up to the collision, during the crash, and anything that happened after, the video footage is a non-biased record that can help prove negligence.
The negligent party’s insurance coverage provider will have a hard time disputing your version of the crash, which will accelerate your claim, so we can negotiate the proper settlement outside the courtroom.
