We are in the business of protecting our clients and ensuring they are accurately represented in any accident or situation. Car crashes are traumatic events; however, and it can be hard to remember what to do in the event of one. That’s why we always say to DOCUMENT everything following a wreck, including the surrounding area.
Although cellphones are critical to any documentation, (see our video here on documentation) there is one piece of evidence that is nearly irrefutable, and that is footage of the wreck itself. This can be provided through dash cams.
Dash Cams can provide definitive proof of the situation and who is at fault. With the way insurance companies downplay most accidents, this evidence could make a or break a claim. Under most circumstances, a dash cam review will most likely be held as the strongest point of evidence and can help expedite the claims process.
You might be thinking dash cams are just for truck drivers or people who earn their living through driving, but most wrecks happen within 15 miles of your home. We all drive, and we are all susceptible to a wreck at any time. If you’re driving every day, then you probably need a dash cam.
You might think dash cams are expensive, but you can find some for as cheap as $20. Just like with buying insurance, the cheapest option isn’t always the best. If you are constantly having to recharge the camera or if the image quality drops significantly at night, you might want to invest in something a little nicer. There are plenty of reviews online that can help with this process.
We are not endorsing a specific dash cam, we are just letting you know of a great tool that is relatively inexpensive and can greatly aid you in the event of a car wreck. Get insurance on top of your insurance and see about getting a dash cam!
