Three Effective Tools to Help in an Automobile Accident Investigation

If you have ever been in an automobile accident, you know that one of the biggest headaches, aside from whether or not you are safe, is documenting what happened. An undocumented accident can end up costing you hundreds if not thousands of dollars either through a deductible, an increase in rates or a lawsuit.

One of the best ways to document what happened in a car accident is with a camera mounted inside your car. There are several models on the market today. In this article we will discuss three of them.

The first is an inside and outside car recorder with GPS. It has two cameras to record images inside as well as outside of the vehicle. The GPS logger records location, speed and direction of the vehicle for viewing on a PC. This cool device records the previous 30 seconds leading up to an accident. It has four LEDs for low light interior video recording and produces images of excellent resolution. It has interior audio recording as well. It plugs directly into your cigarette lighter for continuous power and mounts directly to your windshield. It can support up to a 32 GB SD card which is not included. It does have a 2 GB SD card. This device is particularly useful because it provides locational information that the others do not. That may or may not be of importance since a police officer will record that.

This next tool to record traffic accident evidence goes right on the dashboard of your car. It has a cradle to put the camera inside and uses a laser to help you line up your recording angle. It is small at only 4″ x 2″ x 0.75″ and uses a rechargeable battery. It supports up to a 2 GB size SD card. It is an effective way to provide evidence to insurance companies or to law enforcement if needed.

And the third tool to help document automobile accidents is a Night Vision Camera which is very helpful. It records up to 30 feet per second in high-resolution video and has a 140° wide-angle lens. It uses a rechargeable battery for cordless operation. It can mount onto your windshield or your dashboard and supports up to a 32 GB micro SD card.

Those are three very effective tools you can use to help document automobile accidents for legal, safety or insurance purposes.
