Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2018 -- As workers comp attorneys in Atlanta, The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson believe in helping their clients stay informed about their rights as workers, as well as keeping them up-to-date on the laws that are relevant to their case.
Because many of their clients often ask about the legal significance of dash cam evidence in court, Darwin F. Johnson's team of work injury lawyers in Atlanta feel it is useful to know some of the basic principles of how dash cam evidence is treated in Georgia state law.
A dash cam can provide critical evidence that another driver was at fault in an accident. However, if one speaks with a personal injury lawyer, one would discover that dash cams may not always be legal. While the device may come with a suction cup, drivers should take care not to mount it on the windshield. It is illegal in Georgia to obstruct one's view of the road by attaching items to the front window. If a court determines that a dash cam was improperly mounted, the resulting footage cannot be used to support one's case, and you could even result in a fine.
Further, if a driver has video evidence from a dash cam, one is legally required to turn it over to the court even if it is potentially self-incriminating. Therefore, if a driver installs a dash cam, it is one's responsibility to drive safely and accept their role in an accident.
