Five Reasons Why You Should Invest in a Dash Camera

If you are wondering, What is a dash cam used for? And should I get one? You have come to the right place. In this article, we will discuss five reasons you should invest in a dash cam for your vehicle. However, before understanding why dashcams are a good idea, let the Richmond personal injury lawyers at River Run Law address some basics. If you have questions, please contact us online.  What Is a Dash Cam? A dashboard camera, or dash cam as it is called for short, is a device that is mounted in your vehicle to allow you to record everything that occurs while you drive.  Where Do You Mount a Dash Cam? As the name implies, a dash cam is typically mounted on the vehicle’s dashboard. However, it can be attached to almost anywhere in the interior or exterior of your car. Usually, the camera is mounted to the inside of your windshield or dashboard with a suction cup.  How Does a Dash Cam Work? Dash cams work similarly to any camera or video recording device. Dashcams typically start recording once you start your car and will record on a loop. They are designed to continuously record, for the simple reason you generally do not have advanced warning of when something may occur and when to turn the camera on. Dash Cam Footage Saves Client THE CASE: Car Accident Settled Out of Court THE FACTS: Our client was in the right straight through lane of a major intersection.  Her light was a green ball, as she continued out into the middle of the intersection, a van came from her right at a high rate of speed and t-boned her car.  The other driver claimed she had the green light.  This case would have spent months in litigation but not for a kind person who happened to have a Go-Pro/Dash Cam in his vehicle.  He was stopped at the light when the other driver flew past him, ignored the red light and hit my client.  He stayed at the scene and provided a copy of the video footage to the police and to my client. Despite being ticketed, the other driver continued to fight the charge and maintained to her insurance company she had the light. CASE RESULT: We may have even lost with the jury.  But because there was actual video footage of the other driver, her red light and the crash, my client was able to resolve the matter out of court. Why Should I Get a Dash Cam? You might be wondering, I don’t drive for a living (e.g., I’m not an Uber driver, etc.), so why get a dash cam? Is it necessary? Here are five reasons you should invest in a dash camera. A dash cam is a silent witness to events that may unfold while driving. Because of its ability to capture what is happening in real-time, there are several benefits to investing in one.  1. Provide Evidence in the Event of a Car Accident Dashcams offer solid non-biased evidence of what occurred in real time before, during, and after an accident. Dashcams help eliminate accusatory points of view. The recordings can be used as evidence of injuries and damage during a wreck. 2. Protect Against Insurance Fraud Unfortunately, insurance fraud is prevalent in the United States and costs consumers over $300 billion annually. Sometimes it is as simple as an at-fault driver trying to shift blame to the victim to avoid liability. Other times, criminals engage in insurance fraud schemes intending to defraud. Dash cam footage can quickly quash their plan. 3. Prevent Theft or Vandalism of Your Car Many dash cams begin recording motion. A dash cam can catch thieves and vandals on camera should they approach your unattended vehicle. The mere sight of a camera may even deter them altogether.  4. Avoid Traffic Tickets Dashcams can do more than record what they see. Some are also equipped with night vision, speedometers, and GPS tracking. The information can be helpful if you are pulled over and believe the police officer may have made a mistake. Using dash cam footage can help your defense in traffic court.  5. Supervise Your Younger Driver Although this reason may not apply to everyone, if you are a parent to a new or young driver, a dash cam can allow you to see how your child is doing behind the wheel and give you peace of mind. Get in Contact with a Richmond Personal Injury Lawyer Today If you were recently in an accident, contact River Run Law to schedule a consultation to review your dash cam footage. We offer no-cost, no-obligation consultations.

3 Ways Virginia Drunk Driving Accidents Are Different from Other Car Accidents

If you were injured as a victim of drunk driving accident, it is important to know how drunk driving accidents are different from other types of crashes. Although the number of fatalities from Virginia drunk driving accidents has decreased over the last three decades, drunk driving remains extremely dangerous. Below, the drunk driving accident attorneys at River Run Law describe three ways Virginia drunk driving accidents differ from other car accidents. If you have questions, contact us today. 1. Proving Liability May Be Easier A drunk driving accident may result in criminal prosecution and a civil lawsuit. Although criminal charges do not compensate victims, the charges could make proving liability easier.  Succeeding in a civil claim for drunk driving requires establishing that the other driver was under the influence at the time of the accident. The following evidence may help in proving the driver’s liability: In a personal injury claim, you don’t need to meet the high burden in a criminal case of proving the driver’s responsibility beyond a reasonable doubt. Instead, you need to prove that it was more likely than not that the other driver was drunk and that their intoxication caused the accident.  2. The Insurance Company May Fight Your Claim More Aggressively An insurance company may face a large payout in a drunk driving accident case if you can establish the intoxicated driver’s fault. Knowing what’s at stake, an insurance company may vigorously contest the claim instead of presenting a fair settlement offer. If you are represented by experienced counsel, they can push back against the insurance company and take the case to court if necessary. 3. You’re More Likely to be Eligible for Punitive Damages Punitive damages are typically difficult to prove in car accident cases, but they’re easier to recover in drunk driving accident claims. Punitive damages, which are capped by law, are meant to punish the responsible party rather than to compensate the victim. Thus, they are over and above typical compensatory damages.  The Virginia legislature enacted special provisions for punitive damages against drivers who willfully disregard the safety of others and drive drunk. Punitive damages may be available if you can prove all of the following regarding the drunk driver who caused your accident: The law presumes the driver is intoxicated if they refuse to submit to a field sobriety test.  You could pursue punitive damages even if the driver’s BAC was less than 0.15%. You must, however, prove that the driver’s actions were sufficiently willful or wanton to show a conscious disregard for the rights and safety of others.These are complex issues that require speaking with an attorney to properly evaluate.  Let Our Richmond Car Accident Attorneys Help An experienced Virginia car accident attorney at River Run Law can help if a drunk driver’s actions have impacted you. We understand the complexities of Virginia drunk driving accidents. The River Run legal team has the tools and resources to fight for maximum compensation for the trauma you experienced from being hit by a drunk driver.

Can You Report a Drunk Driver in Virginia? 

While driving, have you ever noticed someone else driving erratically? As you distance yourself from that driver, you may wonder whether they are driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you suspect the driver is not fit to operate a car, you may not know how to report your concerns. Read on to learn more about how to report a drunk driver.  If you have questions, please contact the personal injury lawyers at River Run Law today. Signs of Impaired Driving Understanding how to report a drunk driver anonymously first requires understanding the signs of impaired driving. None of these signs guarantee that a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. However, any of these behaviors can be considered reckless and pose a danger to surrounding vehicles. The common signs of drunk driving include the following:  Even if a driver is not impaired, this behavior is dangerous to other drivers on the road and can cause an accident.  Call 911 How do you report what seems like a drunk driver? It’s vital to first contact 911. Give the emergency operator as much information as you can provide about what you’ve witnessed including the following information:  Law enforcement has a greater chance of catching the driver with a detailed description. It’s important to remember that no one should ever attempt to stop a suspected drunk driver on their own. Any attempt to get their attention or try to cut them off is more dangerous to you and the drivers around you.  What Happens When You Report a Drunk Driver Anonymously?  When you report a suspected drunk driver, law enforcement acts on this information to find the vehicle and pull the driver over. Once they locate the driver, they can assess whether the driver is impaired. One of the ways to determine whether the driver is impaired is through sobriety tests. Failure to pass sobriety tests results in an arrest and impounding of their vehicle.  Contact a Richmond, Virginia Drunk Driving Lawyer Today Despite efforts to combat drunk driving, devastating crashes still result when people get behind the wheel while intoxicated. If you suffer injuries as a result of a drunk driving accident, you deserve compensation. At River Run Law, we aggressively pursue justice and fair financial compensation for the wrongfully injured. We assist you in pursuing your personal injury claim and protect your rights while holding the responsible party accountable for their actions.
