If you have been involved in a car accident, securing traffic camera footage or police reports can be a pivotal step in building your case. In Massachusetts, the process of gathering this evidence is subject to specific procedures and local regulations. It’s recommended to enlist the help of an experienced attorney, as they have the resources to obtain these documents and file requests for public records.
However, it’s important to note that it’s uncommon for traffic cameras to capture footage of car accidents, or for such footage to be preserved for the benefit of victims. Hiring a professional significantly enhances your chances of obtaining this evidence. While every individual has the right to access public government records, not all records are public. Be prepared that there may be a fee associated with acquiring this information.
