The use of vehicle technology has rapidly expanded in recent years. There are technologies which were unavailable a few years ago that can now help determine who is liable for a motor vehicle involved accident. Modern technology can assist injured individuals in proving that another driver was at fault in the event of an accident.
All motor vehicles manufactured after September 1, 2014, come equipped with an Event Data Recorder (EDR). This technology records and maintains certain information before and after an accident occurs. It will detect the vehicle’s speed and braking patterns before and after the accident. Some EDRs have sensors under the driver’s and passengers’ seats and can record data such as the weight of the person sitting in the seat. It can also record the speed, velocity changes and brake use of the vehicle. This is helpful in reconstructing the events before and during the accident. If airbags are deployed, the information is stored permanently. If the airbags are not deployed, the information will be discarded after time.
This type of EDR technology is very helpful to attorneys and accident reconstructionists. The professionals no longer rely on the personal recollections of drivers or passengers to reconstruct the events prior to the accident. By using this technology, they can accurately recreate what happened and determine who is liable for the accident.
