Choosing a Christmas gift you know someone will like can be tricky. Hence, retailers brace themselves for shoppers clutching receipts coming to return unloved gifts in the weeks after Christmas.
Yet, sometimes people end up treasuring a gift they would never have thought of buying for themselves. It could be a luxury item they would never have splurged on. Or a thing they never knew was missing from their lives until they got one. One such gift could be a dash-cam.
A driver you gift a dash-cam to is unlikely to go, “Wow, I’ve always wanted one of these.” Yet, if they are involved in a crash in the future, they may come to think of it as the best gift anyone has ever bought them.
Camera evidence can be crucial to clarify why a crash happened
If injured in a vehicle collision, you need to show how the other person was to blame in order to get the compensation you need. When the police arrive at a crash scene, they will look at things such as skid marks and vehicle damage to try and build a picture of how the crash happened. Each party’s insurer will do the same. Yet, rather than trying to piece together the past, a camera allows you to capture the present as it happens.
Examining your dash-cam footage may bring evidence to light of what the other person did wrong. It could, however, capture if you did something wrong. Having legal guidance to understand what, if anything, you should do with your footage will be crucial to deciding how best to present your claim for compensation after a car crash.
