What Kind of Video Footage Can Legally Be Used as Evidence? Video footage that is acquired legally may be used as evidence.

Video footage obtained through proper channels can legally be used as evidence. A lawyer will understand the legal procedures for obtaining video footage after a car accident. If there is video footage showing your accident or any related events, then your lawyer will seek to obtain this footage through requests to businesses and individuals, public records requests, and other avenues.

Video footage may be strong evidence. If such footage is not available, then your lawyer may rely on other types of evidence.

Video Footage May Show How Your Accident Happened

Video footage can paint a vivid picture of your accident. This sort of evidence could be helpful as your lawyer seeks compensation for you.

Your lawyer may recover video footage from:

  • Cameras owned by a business located near the scene of your accident
  • Government buildings with street-facing cameras
  • Traffic cameras
  • Dash cameras that caught your accident

This footage may provide compelling evidence in cases involving intoxicated drivers as well. There may be different legal requirements for obtaining different types of footage.

Your lawyer can determine what kind of video footage may be legally used as evidence in your case. Particularly helpful types of footage may show a driver:

  • Running a red light
  • Driving erratically
  • Speeding
  • Tailgating

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) notes that drivers generally cause accidents. Any video footage that shows a driver acting improperly just before your accident could be an important piece of your case.

Your Lawyer May Prove Your Case Even Without Video Footage

Not every car accident will have video footage. Your lawyer will make your case for compensation even if video footage of your accident is not legally available.

Your lawyer may make your case for awards using:

  • Witness accounts of your accident
  • Photographic evidence
  • Digital or physical accident recreation models
  • The at-fault party’s own words

Your lawyer will use all available evidence to make your case for compensation after a car accident.
