Red-light cameras may help accident victims seek compensation

Even though every motor vehicle accident is a little different from the next, they almost always leave victims feeling overwhelmed by the magnitude of the situation. Not only does an accident victim have to worry about the damages to their vehicle and how to cover the costs, but they may have also suffered a serious injury in the crash. This can lead to issues as well.

If you've suffered an injury in a motor vehicle accident then you probably know what we're talking about. Trying to seek compensation from the at-fault driver can be a headache in cases where the other driver is uncooperative, does not have insurance or fled the scene after the crash. In cases such as this, seeking legal help from an experienced accident lawyer is often necessary, especially if compensation is needed to help cover medical bills and/or lost wages.

But as you probably know, seeking this compensation can create its own challenges. What if the at-fault driver has fled the scene? Who is liable for compensation? How do you prove that the other driver was reckless or negligent prior to the accident? How can you prove you're telling the truth about a crash when the at-fault driver tells a different story?

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, at least 21 states have provided answers to these questions by permitting the use of red-light cameras. These automated systems can be incredibly valuable tools in intersections accidents because they show what really happened at the time of the crash. Because multiple cameras can be placed at intersections, at a number of angles, law enforcement may be able to prove reckless or negligent driving better as well as track down at-fault drivers in hit-and-run accidents.

Unfortunately, Indiana does not have legislation on the books that allows the use of such cameras. This means that an accident victim may still need the help of a skilled lawyer when it comes to their personal injury case. Not only can a lawyer review the specifics of the case, but they can make recommendations on the best way to proceed with a claim and help a victim receive the compensation they deserve.
