The traffic camera footage from a crash scene is important evidence in showing who had the right-of-way, who went through a red light, and who may not of had their turn signal on. Traffic camera footage has also enabled the legal team at Abrams Landau, Ltd. to identify unsafe drivers, hit-and-run defendants, and other responsible parties who may have avoided the police. Also, cameras in neighboring businesses and residents may capture some or all of a car crash and the actions of the speedy driver.
There may be other situations where film from intersection cameras prior to the scene of the crash may prove valuable in court. These may show prior erratic and unsafe conduct, excessive speed, failure to stop at signals, and other relevant information from the defendant driver. Defendant drivers involved in a car crash have a difficult time getting out from under digital film evidence. That is why it is important to meet with experienced counsel for your car crash or bicycle crash case. Preserving valuable evidence before it is destroyed, or recorded over, can often make or break a permanent injury case. If you or someone you know has been injured due to no fault of your own, and you have questions as to what laws apply, please give us a call (703-796-9555) or email us at Abrams Landau, Ltd.
