Could Drones Help Your Personal Injury Case?

New technology is improving evidence collection and accident investigation in personal injury cases.

When a car accident or another serious accident occurs and someone is injured, the injured person can bring forth a claim against the at-fault party for damages. In order to win that claim, though, the victim--or plaintiff--must have compelling evidence that the at-fault party’s actions were the proximate cause of the accident.

Many different types of evidence may exist that can be used to help prove a claimant’s case, such as the testimony of accident reconstruction experts, eyewitness testimony, vehicle black box data, and more. One type of technology that may aid in a personal injury claim investigation is that of a drone. Here is what you need to know:

How Drone Technology Can Aid in Your PI Case Investigation

When determining how an accident happened, especially a road traffic accident, having a visual can be very helpful, not to mention compelling should the case go to trial and be presented to a jury. Drone technology may be able to help experts and lawyers, as well as anyone involved in making a determination about a settlement, visualize how the accident happened. They can collect data that is highly accurate and can be used to create aerial maps, images, and videos that not only show how an accident may have occurred, but also reflect the conditions that existed at the time of the accident.

The Right Evidence is Critical

When an accident claim is disputed, it could end badly for the claimant. Insurance companies are never eager to pay out a claimant’s full settlement; instead, they are looking for ways to reduce their liability and save money. As such, they will seize any opportunity to deny their client’s fault or place blame on the victim. But the right evidence may be so strong that it cannot be refuted. Drones may be able to gather data that is so compelling that your case has a much greater likelihood of success as a result.
