Dashcam is your best defense against the your-word-against-theirs situations! And here is an example.
Joseph has been a loyal BlackVue user for over 10 years and he was recently involved in a rather unpleasant accident. He was driving his BlackVue dashcam-equipped car when suddenly the driver of a car parked on the side of the road opened the driver’s side door. The distance was too short for Joseph to avoid it (not to mention such maneuver would be dangerous for other drivers as well) and he hit the open door.
Video Proof Saves The Day
The other driver immediately claimed he wasn’t at fault and that he had the door opened long before Joseph’s car hit it, and it could have been avoided. After exchanging information, Joseph received a call from the other driver’s insurance company. They didn’t want to admit fault in this case. Thankfully, Joseph’s BlackVue DR750-2CH LTE dashcam recorded the entire incident and he was able to provide video evidence of the “dooring”.
If not for BlackVue, the other driver would have gotten away with a no-fault accident (Florida is a no-fault state) and his insurance company would have not sided with either party. The damages to Joseph’s car were estimated at $5,000 (and came up to $7,000 total) and paid in full by the other driver’s insurance!
