In recent years, more and more people are installing cameras on their dashboards in case of car accidents or break-ins so they can claim from insurance. A lot of the footage is quite graphic but having video footage of a car crash helps prove who was in the wrong and is fantastic for claiming compensation for any injuries suffered in accidents.
At Accident Advice Helpline we strongly approve of dashboard cameras and suggest you install one to allow yourself to be sure of your ability to claim if you get into an accident. There are a whole host of reasons why having a camera in your car is a good idea and we’ve chosen three advantages showing how these keep you safe.
Three reasons why having a camera in your car is a good idea:
- You have evidence of a car crash. Often the hardest part of a car crash claim is proving what happened because, aside from the wreckage and possible witnesses, it’s often just “he said, she said” which makes it difficult to settle. It records the moment you start your car and will provide proof of your innocence and your counterpart’s guilt.
- Can record vandals and thieves. In the event that someone tries to break into your car or vandalise it, a well-place camera can capture all of the offending actions and be sent to both the police and your insurance company.
- Dash cams can capture reckless drivers. Even if you don’t get into a car accident, you might want to write down someone’s licence place but because you’re on a motorway you can’t. A dash cam offers you the chance to report reckless drivers to the police and send them the footage.
