In today’s digital world, technology is everywhere. Dash cams are semi-recent technology that are convenient and relatively cheap. Video footage captured on these devices can be the difference between having your car accident claim denied and getting the money you rightfully deserve.
Here are three essential reasons why you should consider investing in dashcam technology:
Protect Yourself From Liability
One of the top reasons people buy dash cams is to protect themselves from blame in the event of an accident, such as one involving a pedestrian, bicycle rider, motorcycle rider, or another vehicle. You don’t want to be held liable for an accident you didn’t cause, however, without evidence to show you were not responsible, you could very well be blamed for something you didn’t do. Proving fault is often much easier with irrefutable video footage of the event.
Prevent a Denied Insurance Claim
If you’re injured in an accident, you expect that the at-fault driver’s insurance company will pay you rightful compensation. Unfortunately, we know from experience that even legitimate car accident claims are denied or undervalued all the time. The insurance company may claim that there is insufficient evidence proving their insured was at fault.
If you have a dashcam, you can have clear evidence that the other driver caused the crash. It can also be useful if you are injured in a hit and run accident, by a phantom driver, by a distracted driver, or due to road rage. It can also show if someone hit your parked car.
Save Money and Have Peace of Mind
You can also save money by installing a dash cam on your vehicle! Some insurance companies offer a discounted rate on auto insurance premiums for insured drivers who have dash cams. Don’t be afraid to ask your insurance agent whether you can save money for this security device.
Another way you may be able to save money with a dash cam is you could fight a ticket from law enforcement for a traffic violation you didn’t commit.
The good news is that dash cams are also relatively inexpensive and easy to mount yourself. You can find some on Amazon for as little as $12, however, a decent-quality dash cam will cost you around $50-$150.
