Car Accidents And Dashboard Cameras

Car accidents can occur in a blink of an eye. One minute you are driving safely down the road, then out of the blue, another vehicle slammed into yours. Because accidents happen quickly, suddenly, and violently, you may not be able to recall what happened or prove who was at fault. Witnesses can be helpful, but they are not always around and can be unreliable. Dashboard cameras (dashcams) have become commonplace in other counties. Still, they have not caught on in the U.S. These devices can be very valuable in providing the crucial evidence you need to prove who was at fault and help you get the compensation you deserve if you have suffered damages due to another driver's negligence. Here are the top five reasons you should consider getting a dashcam in your vehicle. What Is A Dash Cam? A dashcam is a small camera typically mounted on your…

Autonomous Vehicles: Transportation Of The Future Or Too Soon To Tell?

Autonomous vehicles are becoming more and more common.  Self-driving cars seem like a thing of the future -- a vehicle driving itself and communicating with the other cars around it to get you where you need to go. For a long time, self-driving cars were purely science fiction, but not anymore. While the technology is still relatively new, it has been implemented successfully in many different cases. While a fully reliable autonomous vehicle is still some time out, cars already on the market come with driverless technology, albeit less sophisticated versions, like limited autopilot and self-parking vehicles.  Some specific examples include Tesla with its autopilot driving technology or Google with its self-driving vehicle development company, Waymo. While those are just some of the more prominent examples, most—if not all—major car manufacturers in the United States have begun research and development and even implementation of self-driving technologies in their vehicles. Autonomous…

Common Causes Of Georgia Car Accidents

Over the past decade, car manufacturers have added to their vehicles an increasing number of features designed to keep you safe. Backup cameras, emergency braking, and lane-keep assist are just some of the features commonly included these days to prevent collisions. Airbag systems and vehicle structure have also improved to provide greater protection in case of an accident. Despite all of these advances, car accident fatalities and severe injuries still happen more than you might think. Notably, Georgia’s roadways saw a surge in car accident fatalities in 2020 even though fewer vehicles were on the roads due to the pandemic. This suggests that there was a spike in dangerous driving behaviors. But other reasons such as driver negligence could have led to these incidents. For those who are injured from a car accident, there is a good chance that someone’s negligence is involved – and that matters for purposes of…

Fatal Car Crash in Savannah Leads to Questions; Could Witnesses Help?

On October 12, 2020, a 65-year-old man was killed when a woman who tried to turn left on MLK Jr. Boulevard in Savannah, Georgia entered his path.
