October 30, 2019 / Category: Motor Vehicle Accidents
It is important to know your rights if you are injured in an automobile accident, and the professionals the Stayshyn Law Offices are your best source to navigate you through a critical and complex process.
Most people do not know that their newly purchased automobile has a data recorder. These recorders, often referred to as “black boxes” record data such as speed, braking and other relevant vehicle data prior to and during an accident. This information can often be used to provide very important information about activities of each vehicle involved in a collision that witnesses are unable to recall. Therefore, the preservation of this data is very important. Most people don’t realize that when you are involved in a motor vehicle collision in which there are injuries, you should, after seeking medical treatment, immediately request that your insurer preserve your vehicle data recorder before the vehicle is repaired or sent to salvage. This collision data is often deleted or overwritten once repairs are made so it is very important that you or a family member request that the data and vehicle be preserved immediately. This information may prove critical to the resolution of who is at fault for the accident or substantiate the severity of your injuries.
