Having clear dash cam footage of the accident, including licence plate and the driver helps avoid any kind of dispute between the parties. Here’s Matt’s story!
Hitting a parked car
Matt’s UTE (pickup truck) was parked in residential area while he worked. Suddenly, large flat bed truck passing by hit the parked vehicle. The crash twisted the alloy tray, damaged the front alloy bull bar and scraped the entire side of the pickup truck. Although the driver stopped and the owner of the company initially accepted fault, he failed to return follow up emails, phone calls and text messages regarding repairs to the vehicle.
Dash cam evidence helps
The damages were estimated at AUD 20,000 (that’s about 13,000 USD). The unresponsive business owner quickly changed his mind when Matt indicated he got everything on his 4K UHD BlackVue dash cam recording in Parking Mode and he would release the footage to the police. After that, the insurance claim process and all the repairs went pretty smoothly!
