Your Atlantaauto accident lawyer can assist with your personal injury claim throughout the process. But what if you were involved in a car accident and someone else was at fault, but you have no proof? There was no police report filed, and you could not identify any witnesses. Do you just walk away and give up on receiving the compensation you deserve for your injuries? Not quite. An attorney can help you find other types of evidence for your injury claim such as red-light cameras. 

If your accident occurred at an intersection, you may be in luck. Red-light cameras, while not everywhere, are mounted on many intersections throughout the country, especially the busier ones. If another driver hit you while you were turning at an intersection and you suspect he or she ran a red light, the red-light camera may have the proof you need. 

Cameras shoot either video or still photographs. When police look to determine fault in an accident that has no witnesses or when both parties deny fault, they may turn to red-light cameras as evidence. In some cases, two cameras may catch images of the same accident, providing strong evidence for insurance companies as well as the courts. Police officers can use the evidence to issue citations if a driver is, in fact, caught running a red light. 

The red-light camera may offer time-stamped photos, which can provide clear evidence if it was believed that one of the drivers was speeding when the accident occurred. In some cases, you can compare the vehicle’s location next to stationary objects in the photo to see how fast the vehicle was going. 

If you were involved in an injury accident but feel you lack evidence, don’t give up. An Atlantaauto accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Shane Smith can help you with your case.
