Cameras are everywhere these days. You may or may not be startled at the sheer number cameras that record your daily commute. Is it easy to get a copy of this footage? See if your accident was potentially recorded on this South Florida Red Light Camera Map.
After a Car Accident in South Florida, if liability is not crystal clear, as your personal-injury lawyer, I will want to gather as much evidence as possible to prove my injured client did not cause the accident. To that end, if there is available camera footage, I want it.
It is important to remember that these cameras are maintained by American Traffic Solutions. They keep their red-light camera footage for South Florida car accidents for only 30 days. If you contact the Transportation Department, they will require a release signed by the Local Police Department and a video request form (i.e. location code, cross streets, direction camera is facing,date, and time.
These forms are available on our car accident injury page. You will also need to pay a fee for the first 15 minutes and more for each additional 15-minute increment –PER CAMERA....so, for example. You would want the footage from both cameras to see the car accident and would have to pay twice.
The first thing you’ll want to note of the different potential sources of video, and this depends largely on where your accident occurred. Were you on a highway or major thoroughfare? Were there any nearby businesses which may have outdoor surveillance cameras?
It is recommended that you have an attorney, if you’ve suffered an injury. Acquiring camera footage will be difficult if you attempt it yourself. Especially from alternate sources. An attorney will inform them of this potential piece of evidence as soon as possible. Your attorney can assist by requesting a subpoena for the release of video footage. Time is of the essence as old data/video is often erased in a matter of days.
Your accident was in a populated area with lots of local businesses, there is a very good chance that your accident was recorded by their CCTV surveillance cameras. This video footage will be valuable help with a little help from an attorney. Though they did record your accident, the business is not obligated to share this footage with you. While they aren’t under an obligation to share this footage, they will often help you. Though, large market stores probably have rules regarding the release of video footage and will require a request to corporate for approval.
Video footage is invaluable evidence to a driver’s negligence, especially if they were distracted by their cellphone.
