Dash cameras are small video cameras that can be mounted to your vehicle’s dashboard or windshield. They are commonly used in emergency vehicles such as police cars but are becoming increasingly used amongst passenger vehicles across the country.
A preliminary issue in personal injury cases is a liability. Who was at fault for the accident? Was there contributory negligence, meaning did both drivers do something wrong to cause the collision? In the absence of witnesses and video surveillance, liability becomes a huge factor affecting your claim and potential settlement.
Dash cameras capture video footage that can be used as irrefutable evidence to determine which driver was at fault. They can particularly facilitate actions where the driver lost consciousness, hit and runs, and allegations of speeding.
