Is A Dash Cam Helpful To Have in Your Car?

When you are involved in an automobile accident there is nothing like hard, visible evidence to make your case clear. Dash cameras can provide convincing and indisputable information that may be the most distinct and straightforward details proving who is liable in an accident. For most private cars, dash cams are not common, but people appear to be buying them at an ever-increasing pace. Hit-and-run accidents, theft, as well as insurance fraud, can all be helped immensely with audio and/or visual feedback. This type of information provides a strong ability to protect one’s self and back up a claim.

Obtaining Evidence

Dash cams can provide a lot more information than just the point of impact. When mounted in a way that allows for observation of the rear of a vehicle, these handy little gadgets will provide information pertaining to all the driver’s activities including:

  • Swerving or veering in and out of lanes
  • Distracted driving
  • Running red lights
  • Aggressive driving practices
  • Appearance of intoxication
  • The make and look of the car in the event of hit-and-runs
  • Speed and force of impact readings

All of this information can put together a very successful and clear-cut case if you have been hit by another reckless driver.

Effectiveness of the Evidence

Concrete evidence that establishes liability will take a lot of the headache out of obtaining compensation for your claim. There is less for an insurance company to argue with when all the proof of liability is right there in front of them. The process of obtaining compensation from an insurance company can be substantially reduced when the evidence exists without a doubt that the negligent party is at fault for the accident. This video information can help reduce disparities between potential eyewitnesses, or act in place of an eye witness if none exists.
