Pre-suit discovery to investigate a potential claim is possible under Rule 202, but it requires filing a petition with the court which costs about $300 by itself. Then add the attorney’s fees, and considering the possibility that there is no footage or that the footage does not show the license number, it may not be worth it for a fender bender type of accident. If you have insurance that will cover your damages, you will be better of handling it that way.
There are a few ways to get that footage, none overly simple or done in the snap of a finger. But if you retain an attorney they can help you with steps to get it.
I am not Your attorney. I am not looking out for Your interests. This answer does not form an attorney-client relationship and should not be interpreted as such. Litigation has time sensitive deadlines. Failure to assert legal rights could result in the waiver (loss) of them. You should, without delay, seek out an attorney if you feel you need legal assistance. Nothing in this post should be used as a substitute for speaking with a licensed attorney about your legal needs and the specifics of your matter.
