What Happens If My Car Accident Was Caught On Tape?

Car Accidents

Today, there are cameras everywhere. There is barely a moment of our lives that is not caught on tape, whether it is surveillance at stores, public safety cameras, private security systems, or even the cameras that are around us at all times with our smartphones. We often go throughout our day, not realizing how much of our activity is recorded. 

If you were involved in a car accident that was caught on tape, you should talk to an Atlanta car accident lawyer about your case. Knowing that each car accident’s circumstances are unique, the dedicated team at Gilormo Injury Law is ready to work with you.

How Can Accident Photos or Video Help My Case?

Learning that your car accident was caught on tape can feel startling. You may be worried about who was watching and why. However, the recordings of the accident may actually be the key evidence needed to prove your case!

When a car accident is caught on tape, it can show us many things that matter to your case:

  • What property and persons were involved in the accident?
  • Did another driver break the law?
  • Was there additional property damage or injury on the scene after the initial accident?
  • Were there other dangerous conditions at the accident scene that should be considered?

Since video and photographs can be viewed repeatedly, you and your Atlanta car accident lawyer can pull out the relevant details of your case bit by bit. Another benefit to having video footage or photos of the accident is that as time goes on, memories of the events causing the accident can fade or get confused, but videos are an unchanging and accurate portrayal of events. 

How an Atlanta Car Accident Lawyer Uses Evidence In Your Case

Rest assured that attorney Amber Gilormo and her team have plenty of experience working on personal injury cases where pictures and videos of an accident are readily available, as well as experience knowing when we need to investigate further to obtain those images or additional information to prove our client’s case. Your Atlanta car accident lawyer knows the process and procedures for gathering and using evidence in Georgia for your accident case.

The courts have a set of rules that determine what information can be used in court, how the information can be used, and the process for exchanging this information among parties. This process is called discovery. Discovery can be a daunting process, but your Atlanta car accident lawyer knows how to use this process best to fight for the compensation you deserve from your case. Whether we can settle your matter before trial or need to have a trial in court, we will fight for you every step of the way.
