5 Reasons You Should Install a Dashcam in your Vehicle

Nearly 1000 accidents happen each day on Florida roads. Almost every one of them results in some sort of injury for the driver and/or the passengers involved.

Installing a dashcam in your vehicle can record your surroundings and any causes if you’re involved in one of those accidents. There are other benefits to having one installed as well. Here are a few:

While you may be the safest driver on our roads, that doesn’t mean you won’t be involved in an accident. Your safe driving can’t control the cars and trucks around you, and they may crash into you.

We recommend installing a dashcam in your vehicle. Not only will this give you a record of the accident, but it can also help the police, your insurance company, and your attorney help determines all the possible causes.

Most current dashcams come with both front and rear-facing cameras. They also typically have wide-angle lenses. This means they record what goes on both in front and behind your car, while also capturing some of what is going on in the lanes next to you.

 

There is some evidence that suggests vehicle break-ins are on the rise. Unfortunately, you can’t watch your vehicle at all times, but with a dashcam installed you might be able to change that.

Having a camera in your car set to monitor any movement can keep potential thieves away. And if someone does break-in, it can record who did it and when.

You might worry the thieves will steal the dashcam, and while that is possible, most upload the videos they capture to the cloud or directly to your phone or tablet. This means that, even if it’s stolen as well, you’ll have a record to pass on to the authorities.

We’ve all seen the videos on Facebook, Reddit, or elsewhere online of people throwing themselves in front of slow-driving and stopped cars. Their hope is to get a settlement from the driver’s car insurance.

Without a camera recording their actions, some of these fraudsters may have been successful. Not only would the driver have been on the hook for whatever “injuries” occurred, but their insurance rates would also probably be increased. On top of that, they might have received criminal charges as well.

Thankfully for those drivers, and hopefully, you, having a dashcam installed shows who the real criminals are in these situations.

Every year there are more than 15,000 vehicle accidents where the drivers are 15 – 17 years old. Teenage drivers make up a higher percentage of accidents for their age group than any other age group. That’s why insurance for a teenage driver is more expensive than anyone else’s.

Having a dashcam installed in your vehicle can give you insight into how your teenager is driving. Whether they’re being safe or letting themselves get distracted by friends, phones, music, or any of the other thousand distractions available to kids today.

Having a tool to monitor your teen’s driving won’t, unfortunately, reduce your insurance rates. It can help you educate them on when they’re driving dangerously and give you the security of knowing that, if they are in an accident, you’ll have a record of how it happened.

Monitoring Teenage Drivers

There are some fun benefits to having a dashcam in your car. Have you ever seen the videos of packages falling off a truck and rolling downhill, a boat being towed while on fire, or a deer bounding off the roof of the truck in front of you?

All of these videos, and others, were caught on someone’s dashcam. Depending on where you drive, and since you’re probably in Florida, you never know what you’re going to see out there.

Wouldn’t it be fun to have one of your videos go viral? 

Installing a dashcam isn’t a requirement, but there are advantages for you when you do have one. There are hundreds of different types of dashcams, each with its own pros and cons. Find one that works for you and has the options you think you’ll need.

If an accident does happen, and you’ve captured it on your dashcam, make sure to bring that when you meet with one of our Florida Car Accident Attorneys. That video along with any other documentation you have can help us create the best strategy for your and your case.

We want to make sure you have the best representation possible to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. We don’t charge any fees for accident victims unless we win or settle your case. Contact us today and let us know about your case.
