Dash Cams Could Save Your Car Accident Case?
Dashboard camera videos from countries like from Russia have become increasingly popular on the YouTube hit charts. Millions view videos showing snowy crashes, bad passes, and other glaring driving oddities. However, there’s a good reason that dashcams are so prevalent in the former Soviet Union and beyond: they offer drivers and passengers ironclad evidence in the case of a crash.
Crashes also affect thousands of Americans each day. With these staggering statistics, there are many cases in which only substantial evidence can pinpoint the responsible party in such an accident. So this becomes especially vital if there is a severe injury or death involved in the case.
Will Digital Technology Prove Car Accidents of the Future?
With digital technology allowing for smaller, more efficient, and cheaper cameras, they’ve gained significant traction in the United States and Canada over the last five years.
Consider that civil cases do not need evidence beyond a shadow of a doubt. Due to this, settlements and judgment can be achieved when one party has been determined to have been in majority fault for the accident. The bar of convincing a jury is much lower, and it is not uncommon to see visual evidence, such as an onboard dash cam that captures the whole incident giving one side an iron-clad advantage.
Hundreds of videos are now swarming YouTube of American drivers having an extra layer of unofficial insurance when they drive. Now there can be no denying who is responsible in certain crashes, as the audio and video will clear up any misconceptions.
Will DashcmasReplace Courts of Law?
Having a dashcam is a surefire way to avoid being caught in an additional court case and protected in case of a tort action. For more information about the legal ramifications of such incidents, reach out to professional legal experts. So this would be a significant reduction on our already taxed Los Angeles Court System for one.
We look forward to seeing how far this technology will get integrated with the law and automobiles of the future.
