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.

Who Pays for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Virginia?

It’s heartbreaking to lose a loved one unexpectedly, especially due to someone else’s negligence. After such a loss, financial worries can add to the stress. If you’re considering a wrongful death lawsuit in Virginia, you might wonder who pays for a wrongful death lawsuit and how the associated costs will be covered. The experienced personal injury lawyers at River Run Law know the financial aspects of wrongful death cases in Virginia, including who is responsible for the costs and where the funds may come from. Understanding Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Virginia Virginia law allows a claim if someone’s death is caused by another’s wrongdoing, negligence, or default. Typically, the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate submits the claim on behalf of the statutory beneficiaries. The compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit may cover various damages, including: A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help determine the appropriate compensation amount to adequately address the surviving family members’ losses.  Who Qualifies as a Statutory Beneficiary in Virginia? Statutory beneficiaries defined by Virginia law include: When there are multiple beneficiaries, they can either agree to a split or a judge can determine it for them. Who Pays in a Wrongful Death Suit? Depending on the circumstances, different parties may be financially responsible. The defendant—the party responsible for the death—or their insurance company will be liable if the court finds them at fault. Virginia’s Allocation of Fault in Wrongful Death Cases Virginia follows a contributory negligence system in wrongful death cases. In these cases, the court considers the percentage of fault each party bears. If the defendant is found more than 50% at fault, they are liable for damages proportional to their share of the blame.  If multiple parties are found partially responsible, the court assigns a percentage of fault to each and apportions the award accordingly. However, if the decedent is found to be at fault for their death, the court may bar the estate from recovering any compensation. Who Covers the Filing Costs in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit? The cost of filing the lawsuit is usually the responsibility of the person initiating the lawsuit, such as the estate’s representative. These costs can include filing fees, court costs, investigator expenses, and expert witness fees.  Sources of Compensation in Wrongful Death Lawsuits Compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit can come from several sources, including: When a defendant commits particularly egregious acts, punitive damages may be granted to discourage future instances of the same behavior.  How Much Does Insurance Pay for Wrongful Death? Insurance payouts vary depending on policy details, the nature of the wrongful act, and the claimed damages. For example: A knowledgeable wrongful death lawyer can help ensure you receive just compensation and prevent the insurance company from trying to reduce your payout.  How Legal Fees Are Managed Legal fees in a wrongful death lawsuit can be significant, but most personal injury attorneys, including those at River Run Law, operate on a contingency fee basis. Attorneys are paid a percentage of the recovery, and if you are unsuccessful in obtaining compensation, the lawyer gets nothing. This arrangement ensures that families can pursue justice without the stress of upfront legal costs. Wrongful Death vs. Survival Actions Wrongful death lawsuits seek compensation for the loss suffered by the decedent’s survivors. Survival actions focus on damages the deceased person experienced before passing away, such as pain and suffering. Working with an experienced attorney can help determine which applies to your circumstances. River Run Law: Experience You Can Trust At River Run Law, we understand the profound emotional and financial struggles associated with wrongful death. Our dedicated team has a proven track record of securing significant client settlements and verdicts. We’ve helped families recover millions of dollars in compensation for wrongful death cases. Our firm is committed to providing compassionate and aggressive representation throughout the legal process.  Contact us today for a free consultation. We’re here to listen, guide you through your legal options, and help you find a measure of justice during this challenging time.  Where You Can Find Our Richmond Office FAQs How Long Does a Wrongful Death Lawsuit Take? The length of a wrongful death lawsuit depends on the case’s complexity and the defendant’s willingness to settle. While some cases are resolved in a year, others may take longer.  What Happens If the Defendant Has No Assets or Insurance? While this situation presents challenges, our team will explore all avenues for recovering compensation, including pursuing assets you may not know about. Additionally, Virginia allows for wrongful death claims against uninsured motorists under certain circumstances. When Is the Deadline for Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Virginia? Virginia has a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits. Therefore, you should speak with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure you meet all deadlines. What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Wrongful Death Attorney? An experienced wrongful death attorney can offer crucial assistance throughout the legal process. They can handle your case by investigating, gathering evidence, negotiating with insurance companies, and representing you in court. Their understanding of Virginia’s wrongful death laws and their expertise with similar cases can considerably improve your prospects of victory.
