How to Get Traffic Camera Footage for a Car Accident in Boca Raton, FL

As a car accident victim in Boca Raton, you may be wondering if there is traffic camera footage available that will help your case. In all likelihood, you won’t be able to obtain such footage because it isn’t stored.

In most cases, traffic camera footage of car accidents in Boca Raton is unavailable. That’s because the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) doesn’t store footage from live traffic cameras. If your accident happened near a red-light camera, our attorneys can contact law enforcement officials in Boca Raton to obtain any available images. Even without footage from traffic cameras, our lawyers can prove a negligent driver’s fault for your injuries and damages using private security camera footage, photographs, eyewitness statements, and medical records.

Our attorneys are dedicated to helping car accident victims in Boca Raton recover the compensation they deserve. For a free case evaluation with the Boca Raton, FL car accident lawyers at The Law Offices of David I. Fuchs, Injury & Accident Lawyer, P.A., call today at (954) 568-3636.

Can You Get Car Accident Footage from Traffic Cameras in Boca Raton, FL?

After getting injured in a car accident in Boca Raton, victims understandably want compensation for their damages. Gathering any and all evidence that might help your claim is important, but does that include traffic camera footage? Can you even get footage of a car accident from traffic cameras in Boca Raton?

FDOT Cameras

There are live traffic cameras in Boca Raton and other areas throughout Florida. These cameras are maintained by the Florida Department of Transportation and stream live footage to FDOT’s website. They’re used to help drivers and FDOT staff stay updated on live traffic and weather conditions. While they stream live footage, they don’t copy or store that footage for car accident victims to access. That means even if your recent accident happened in view of one of FDOT’s cameras, it is very unlikely that you will be able to retrieve any footage. That said, our Boca Raton, FL car accident lawyers can still contact FDOT in case footage of your collision is available.

Other Cameras

In Florida, some other traffic cameras are permitted for use by law enforcement officials. For example, red-light cameras are allowed in Boca Raton. Instead of capturing footage, red-light cameras take photographs when triggered by a negligent driver running a stop-light. Suppose your recent collision happened near a red-light camera. In that case, our South Florida car accident lawyers can contact the police to request access to any images that might help your claim. Other common traffic cameras, such as speed cameras, are not permitted for use in Florida.

How to Prove Fault for a Car Accident in Boca Raton, FL without Traffic Camera Footage

Although you are unlikely to get traffic camera footage of your recent car accident in Boca Raton, that doesn’t mean you can’t gather other evidence to prove a negligent driver’s fault in a lawsuit. Using evidence such as security camera footage, photographs, eyewitness statements, and medical records, our attorneys can help you recover the compensation you deserve after a car accident in Boca Raton.

Security Camera Footage

Traffic cameras aren’t the only devices that might capture a car accident as it occurs. In fact, it is often more likely for security cameras to film and store footage of collisions in Boca Raton. You might find security cameras near businesses or even private homes. Suppose your recent accident happened in view of a private security camera. In that case, our attorneys can contact the owner to obtain any footage that might support your compensation claim against a negligent driver. So, don’t be discouraged if you can’t get traffic camera footage of your recent car accident in Boca Raton, as there may be other cameras in the area that have filmed your collision and a negligent driver’s actions.

Photographs

While camera footage can be helpful when proving fault in a lawsuit, so can photographs. After a car accident in Boca Raton, victims should take as many photos as they can. Snap pictures of your injuries, property damage, and anything else you can think of. If you are unable to take photos yourself because of your injuries, ask eyewitnesses or first responders to do so for you. Using photographs from a crash site, our Miami car accident lawyers can more easily prove that a negligent driver caused your injuries and damages.

Eyewitness Statements

When car accidents happen, people tend to stop and watch. If you notice eyewitnesses near your accident location, do your best to get their contact information. If you can’t, their names will likely be included in the police report for your collision. Our attorneys can then get in contact with eyewitnesses to learn if they have any important information about an accident that may support your case. Eyewitness testimony can be crucial evidence in a lawsuit against a negligent driver, even if traffic camera footage or photographs are available.

Medical Records

Although traffic camera footage may be able to prove that a negligent driver caused an accident, it doesn’t show the damages you have incurred because of a driver’s negligence. That can be achieved using medical records. After a car accident in Boca Raton, go to the hospital. Medical professionals can assess your injuries and properly diagnose you so that you can get the necessary treatment. Using your medical records, our lawyers can show how a driver’s negligence injured you in ways that traffic camera footage can’t.

“…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

“Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
