A Personal injury lawyers role is to help individuals harmed by the negligence of others recover compensation for their losses. How a smart lawyer represents their client has changed significantly in the last 25 years. While it’s true that the goal remains the same, new technologies have been incorporated into the process that may strengthen a case and change the financial recovery for the client. As the rest of the world has advanced technologically, the legal system has adapted too. At Guenard & Bozarth we stay up to date on the current technology so we can better assist those we represent.
Technology has permanently altered how we live and it makes little difference if we are an early adopter or not. 20 years ago, virtually no one had a still and video camera with them at all times and today it’s commonplace due to the Smart Phone. This tool makes it easy to capture evidence immediately after an incident and this includes taking photographs or using the video recorder to make a video of everything in the vicinity. Cameras are also used to obtain witness statements.
In addition to mobile devices, various other types of technology can make an impact in the courtroom. Surveillance cameras on nearby homes or businesses or recording devices inside the vehicle itself like dash cams often capture important details of an accident which we can use to help resolve cases. Modern cars come standard with data and event recordings which can help paint a 3-D picture of events leading up to a vehicle crash occurring. Vehicle recording devices are mandatory and comprehensive inside larger commercial vehicles, but even almost every smaller passenger car has some sort of data recording device that can be obtained in the event a serious collision occurs.
In the courtroom, technology has had an impact as well. Often, the courtroom still looks like a traditional “courtroom” but today you will also find courtrooms filled with televisions, computers and tablets. It is also common to see computer enhanced reenactments of collisions due to the advances in technology.” Smart and well-prepared personal injury attorneys find ways for the judge and the jury view and understand the facts of the case. Technology enhances our ability to properly tell the complete story and not using it is not a viable option.
We represent people who are injured because of the careless and reckless acts of others. At the end of the day your case can only be settled one time and you need to know all of the facts beforehand. The reason that insurance companies have paid our clients in excess of $130,000,000.00 is that we get the facts and are not intimidated at the prospect of going to trial when insurance companies fail to offer full compensation.
