Do not under estimate the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words“. We as insurance brokers in the transport industry are regularly left in a dilemma when our drivers try to explain the circumstances of an accident but we don’t have proof to back it up. Sadly it is often a situation where they have to prove their innocence when it comes to an insurance claim, as insurance companies regularly take the side of aggressive claims recovery agents on commercial reasons alone. Only when the claim is sizeable do they consider it is feasible to defend their truck driving client. We welcome the Dashcam, as we have already experienced a whole new approach by the legal fraternity when this evidence is readily available. The initial cost will save you money in the long run.
