Can Dash Cam Footage Help My Car Accident Lawsuit? By Jackson Reed on February 27, 2024

The shock of a car accident can cause confusion and disbelief. A wreck in the Houston, TX, area can also lead to significant physical, financial, and emotional harm. To get compensated for your medical bills, physical pain, property damage, and more, you can reach out to my Sugar Land law firm to file a personal injury lawsuit.

A key piece of evidence that I may use to help win your case is dash cam footage. Read on to find out how dash cam video evidence can help your car accident lawsuit.

How Dash Cam Footage Can Be Crucial

Proving fault in a car crash is incredibly important, especially in the Houston area. The state of Texas operates under modified comparative negligence laws, meaning that the amount of compensation a victim gets is directly proportional to how at-fault they are determined to be for their crash.

Because dash cam footage can be used to paint an irrefutable picture of what occurred during a collision, it allows our attorneys to clearly demonstrate the negligent behavior of whoever hit you, while defending you from allegations that your actions were a significant factor in your accident.

There Are Other Types of Video We Can Use

In addition to dash cam footage, our attorneys can seek out cell phone video footage recorded by bystanders, eyewitnesses to the crash, or even passengers. We can also seek out surveillance camera footage from any businesses or even houses that are near the scene of your wreck.

We may also be able to use video to help prove the cause and extent of your injuries. For example, some Harris County EMS Agencies equip their paramedics with full body cameras. By obtaining this footage, we can illustrate that you suffered severe harm as a direct result of your crash, allowing us to refute any false defense attorney claims that your injuries may be unrelated to your collision.

Dash Cam Footage Can Also Help After a Hit and Run

If your vehicle was severely damaged following a hit and run, you may be dealing with tens of thousands of dollars in property damage along with other related losses like a temporary inability to work and having to pay for the cost of a rental car.

By examining dash cam footage, we can help to identify whoever hit your car and hold them to account. We can do this by identifying the make and model of their car, their license plate number, and a physical description of the offending driver.
