Recorded statements, police reports, and even pictures are not always the best sources for learning the whole story about a collision. But what if the cars could talk? Thanks to Event Data Recorders, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, and Infotainment Systems, they can. These technologies record a lot of data about what happened, and what didn’t happen, at the time of an accident – but can they help your subrogation claim?
On this week’s installment, Rebecca is joined by Eric McDowell, Project Engineer at Impact Analysis, Inc. who specializes in motor vehicle accident investigation and reconstruction. Rebecca and Eric dive deep into the importance of this collected data and explain how federal statutes have standardized the information recorded, the difference between data recorders in passenger and commercial vehicles, and just who owns the data, as well as the cost of obtaining it. Listen in to learn how these technologies can benefit your subrogation case.
