As with nearly everything, technology is changing the way automobile accidents are litigated. The latest technologies that are available in cars and trucks can be very useful in proving another driver's responsibility when it comes to a car accident case.
If the negligent driver's insurance company is trying to deny or limit the amount of compensation that you are entitled to for the injuries and damages that you suffered, an experienced personal injury attorney can fight for your legal rights and help maximize the value of your case.
Here is a quick rundown of how your car accident attorney can use these new technologies to help change the way your case is litigated.
Event Data Recorder
You may not even be aware if your car contains an Event Data Recorder, but most vehicles that were manufactured in the last several years will contain these devices.
Event Data Recorders (EDR), are devices that track and record various data about your car’s operation such as:
- Vehicle Speed
- Brake Pattern
- Throttle Position
- Deployment of Airbags
- Restraints Worn
- Engine Speed
- Steering Angles
There are over 30 types of data that can be recorded by EDR's and this data will essentially create a thorough recording of the accident that could potentially prove that the other driver was:
- driving too fast
- quickly and repeatedly changing lanes
- following too close
- took dangerous turns
- failed to stop at a traffic control sign
Depending on your case, these facts may help to prove that the damages and injuries that you suffered were indeed the cause of another driver's reckless behavior and therefore your entitlement to compensation.
Cell phones will store all information about calls and text messages for a limited time. Furthermore, your service provider stores the exact same information for several months.
If need be, your accident attorney may be able to obtain this information during litigation. Cellphone data can provide a precise time at which a call or text was sent or received which may be crucial in order to prove fault.
Cellphones may also be used to prove someone's location. Depending on the details of your case, finding out location information may be imperative. For example, if the allegation is that the driver who hit you was drunk, having a cellphone location data may be able to show that the driver had left a bar or club before the accident occurred.
