Can I Get The Video Of My Car Accident?

  Can I Get The Video Of My Car Accident?Even though you are the victim of the car accident, the burden of proof will fall on you. You’ll have to prove that the other driver was negligent, their negligence caused an accident, and that accident caused your injuries. Proving injury can be done by correlating medical bills with the timeline of the accident. However, proving the other driver was negligent and caused the accident can be a bit more tricky.

Unlike written statements or verbal testimony, the video shows what happened without a doubt. It can prove negligence, the severity of the accident, and the severity of your injuries. It is the most compelling form of evidence and it can really help you win your case.

How Do I Know If My Accident Is On Video?

Nowadays, there are video cameras... ...read full post
