Accident Captured on Dash Cam: Thousands Covered by Insurance

In a recent incident in Brockton, Massachusetts, a right turn gone wrong in a double-turning lane resulted in significant damage to this victim's vehicle. The rear camera of a Thinkware Q800 Pro dash cam captured the accident in detail, demonstrating the vital role of dash cams in resolving traffic disputes.

The Incident

While making a right turn in a double-turning lane, the victim's vehicle was sideswiped by a white SUV that failed to merge properly into its lane. Instead of maintaining its lane, the SUV veered into the victim's lane, scraping against the rear side of the vehicle. The resulting damage was extensive, totalling over $30,000.

The victim shared their experience, highlighting the financial relief provided by the dash cam footage:

"The damage cost over $30,000, which was covered by insurance. Because of the video, which was submitted to the insurance company, I did not have to pay the deductible. The video saved me one thousand dollars."

 

The importance of a Dash Cam

The Thinkware Q800 Pro, known for its high-quality video recording and reliability, captured the incident with clarity. This footage was crucial in proving the victim's account of the accident and simplifying the insurance claim process. Without the dash cam, they’d need to pay a deductible, but the Thinkware Q800 Pro made it straightforward and easy.

This incident underscores the importance of having a reliable dash cam like the Thinkware Q800 Pro. Not only do dash cams provide peace of mind, but they also serve as an invaluable tool in protecting drivers from unwarranted claims and financial burdens. The Thinkware Q800 Pro is a robust option that ensures you have evidence when you need it most, giving you the confidence to drive without worrying about potential disputes. We’re happy to see Q800 Pro users still going strong, considering the camera is 5+ years old, and has now been fully replaced by the Thinkware Q1000. The Q1000 expands the advantages of the Q800 even further, with more modern features, and improved image quality.
