Dash cams are mostly used by the police to record traffic stops and possible accidents. However, they are becoming increasingly popular with cautious motorists who want recorded evidence of any potential accident that might prove who was at fault or for traffic stops to prove their innocence.
“Without witnesses, it is never easy to prove who is at fault in an accident,” said personal injury attorney Luke Dow, founder of Luke Dow Law Firm. “However, dash cams are essentially witnesses and oftentimes record conclusive evidence, which can be used as evidence in insurance claims.”
For motorists considering mounting a dash cam to their dashboard, Dow lists the following three advantages:
No. 1: A picture is worth a thousand words. “Dash cams can record the seemingly unbelievable negligent actions of the other driver in an accident, and that is priceless when it comes to liability and injury claims,” said Dow. “However, keep in mind that dash cams are only pointed in one direction, so do not always capture the complete picture of an accident.”
No. 2: Shows the severity of impact. Dash cam footage can show the severity of the impact in an accident, even if there isn’t significant damage to the car(s). “In an injury claim case, this is convincing evidence that the severity of an injury can’t just be determined by the amount of damage to the car(s),” said Dow. “Sometimes the force of impact is transferred to the person, not the automobile.”
No. 3: Can help fight traffic violations. “Dash cams have the added benefit of helping people contest traffic tickets for violations they didn’t commit, as it is usually your word against the traffic officer’s,” said Dow. “Dash cam footage can potentially prove if the officer was wrong or lied about a traffic violation.”
