There are numerous added safety features in the newest electric cars. The leader of the electric car movement, Tesla, has additional safety features that can help prove liability when it comes to an accident. In many car accident claims, the victims are trying to establish blame on the other person no matter the circumstances. But, if one of them drives a Tesla equipped with a dashcam, the question of liability may be easier to solve. 

If you have been in an accident in your Tesla or an accident with a Tesla driver, the attorneys at Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates can help you use the dashcam footage to show who is really liable for the car accident.

How Does A Tesla Dashcam Work?

The Silicon Valley automaker is known for implementing state-of-the-art features in its Tesla vehicles. Many of these features are first-in-class to debut on a vehicle. The dash cam is a feature that Tesla has worked to include in all of their vehicles manufactured after 2013. Although the dashcam isn’t like many other dashcams that only monitor what is going on in front of the car, the Tesla dashcam can record what is happening around the entire car. The newest models have cameras placed around the vehicle door handles.

The owner of the Tesla can choose to have the camera continuously record or only record if the vehicle has sensed an accident. A new feature called “Sentry Mode” also allows the owner to record the vehicle’s surroundings even if the vehicle is turned off. This can help with break-ins and thieves. 

How Much Can It Record?

Recording duration depends on the amount of storage allowed for recordings on the vehicle. During the setup process, the vehicle owner will use a USB to save the recordings. Once the drive begins, the video is recorded and saved to the USB. But, once the USB storage is full, the car automatically overrides the oldest footage.

If you want to save a specific clip, you must press the red button on the Tesla display, and the previous ten minutes of drive time will automatically be placed into a separate folder for later review. If you are involved in an accident, it is essential that you perform this action. Doing so may help prove who was at fault in the case. 

Ways A Tesla Dashcam Can Help Accident Victims

After an accident, you may know that there are many times when all of the drivers involved are far too shaken up to remember who caused the accident. With a Tesla dashcam, everyone has the ability to see the actual footage of what happened, which can help lead to the proper assignment of blame and responsibility.

Even if the vehicle has not been in an accident itself, it may have recorded a nearby accident. We never know when an accident may occur, so having the camera on and recording can also help those around you.
