Were you rear-ended in Walnut Grove, Georgia by a car that was speeding?
If so, the best way to prove this is by downloading the data from the airbag control module from the speeding car.
Please see this blog post what you should do to obtain and download the airbag control module data from the at-fault driver’s car.
FIRST-ONCE THE ACCIDENT IS OVER, MAKE SURE TO GET THE AT-FAULT DRIVER AND HIS/HER INSURANCE COMPANY’S CONTACT INFORMATION. THEN SEND THEM A PRESERVATION LETTER.
Your preservation letter should specifically ask the at-fault driver and his/her insurance company to preserve the vehicle and the airbag control from the vehicle. You may be wondering, what is an airbag control module?
An airbag control module is a computer in the car that records important information such as how fast the car was traveling leading up to impact and when the airbag deployed.
It is vital to put the at-fault driver and his/her insurance company on notice to preserve the airbag control module data so they don’t put the car back on the road and risk losing the data.
SECOND-DOWNLOAD THE AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE DATA FROM THE CAR.
Once you put the at-fault driver and his/her insurance company on notice to preserve the airbag control module, you then need to reach out to the at-fault driver’s insurance company to set up a download of the airbag control module data so you can extract the relevant data related to the accident.
It will take an accident reconstructionist to download the data, as this is something that takes specialized knowledge. There are numerous reputable accident reconstructionists around Georgia that can perform this type of download.
THIRD-ONCE THE AIRBAG CONTROL MODULE DATA IS DOWNLOADED, REVIEW THE DATA AND DETERMINE IF THE AT-FAULT DRIVER WAS DRIVING TOO FAST.
Generally, the airbag control module data will be downloaded into a report format. Make sure to review the data to see how fast the driver was going leading up to the accident and compare the driver’s speed with the speed limit.
