Red light cameras trigger a lot of opposition these days, especially from the lawyers who defend red light runners. But in this case, a Sarasota woman hurt in a crash almost 2 weeks ago now has loads of video evidence to prove her case to aggressive insurance adjusters.
20 year old Mia Redding is still in the hospital today, according to reports on ABC 7, not able to walk on her own yet. Redding was driving on Fruitville Road and crossing the 301 intersection when 30 year old Shannon McWeeny ran right through a red light and slammed into Redding's car at almost 50 miles per hour. The whole thing was caught on camera, from multiple angles.
Getting a copy of the video or photos immediately from a red light camera takes an experienced lawyer who knows where to look for evidence and how to get it. But that's not all. Your attorney must also know how to use this video to your best advantage during a settlement negotiation. Never think this is an open and shut case. Insurance companies have teams of attorneys whose only job is to limit your compensation any way they can. If your attorney is not sophisticated enough to know how to handle that kind of pressure, then you may not end up with as good a financial settlement as possible, no matter how clear the evidence is on film.
The attorneys at Buckman and Buckman, P.A. support red light cameras at any and all intersections because our accident victims deserve clear evidence to show they were never at fault. We've used video and photographic evidence in many of our car accident and motorcycle accident cases, so we know what to look for. Besides showing who did what at the scene, many times the video also gives us leads about additional witnesses to the accident, road conditions and the weather. Tracking down every little piece of evidence takes experience and legwork and it's what we do for all of our clients, every single time we take a case.
