How should I obtain security footage for a claim?
When dealing with obtaining video, a lot of times commercial properties will be very hesitant to turn the video over. So, it’s very important that when an accident occurs, if there is video, you try to get it from the owner. If they will not hand it over, it’s extremely important that you contact an attorney right away. I can’t tell you how many times that we’re contacted a couple of days later, a week later and these videos run on 24-hour loops. So, it’s very important that we’re contacted right away so we can send a preservation letter to preserve that video, of the accident occurring itself. And if they don’t preserve it, we will then pursue all legal remedies.
