Apart from the damage to your vehicle and any injuries sustained in the crash, the most challenging part of an automobile accident is determining who’s at fault. It’s not uncommon to find that both parties will blame the other driver and claim that they had the right of way. So, how do the authorities (and the insurance companies) determine who is right?

The good news is that the advent of the Digital Age has made it much easier and more convenient to capture and distribute information. Photos, livestreams, driver vehicle data, and even video surveillance footage can aid in the process of determining fault. In this article, we’ll discuss how you can retrieve these types of data and how you can use it to support your case after an automobile accident.

Intersections are among the most common sites for collision. This is usually due to an error on the part of one driver. Perhaps they ran a red light, or maybe they missed a stop sign. In either case, that driver is at fault and should be held responsible for any consequences. But these types of accidents are also notoriously difficult to sort out.

Luckily, many intersections are now equipped with traffic cams. These cameras are aimed at the road intersection, primarily for the purpose of monitoring traffic flow and weather conditions. Unfortunately, these cameras typically livestream rather than record video footage. So where can you find video footage near the scene of an accident? Look no further than nearby businesses or residences.
