Today’s world is full of chaos between cars commuting to and from work and the need to communicate through calls, emails and texts growing at an alarming rate. Add them all up and you have the potential for car wrecks. Sadly, some drivers are so distracted that they may not even know they entered your lane and hit you, which will cause them to deny fault.
This is the reason you should have a dash camera. They are inexpensive (usually around $40) and install in seconds. The best reason, however, is that you will have the necessary evidence to prove you are not at fault.
One client of ours recently took our advice and it immediately proved valuable. Someone side- swiped him and then blamed our client. The insurance company took the opportunity to deny the claim. We sent the video footage to the insurance company and they accepted liability (fault), which resulted in our client receiving a substantial settlement.
For a $40 investment, our client was able to avoid the time, cost and anxiety of going to trial.
If you have any questions or need a contact to purchase a dash camera, call the Cossé Law Firm at 504-588-9500.
