When you are pursuing compensation following a car accident, there are many different strategies your attorney can use to prove the other driver’s fault. A resource that could be helpful in your case is the testimony of an expert witness. Whether you are involved in settlement negotiations or taking your case to trial, a statement provided by an expert witness can strengthen your claim.
What Kind of Expert Witnesses Help with Car Accident Cases?
During car accident case investigations, a lot of different questions need to be answered: Who caused the accident? How did the accident happen? Was distracted, intoxicated, or reckless driving a factor? Were there any mechanical issues? How did the injuries occur? What is the overall cost of the accident damages?
Answering these questions involves an analysis of various mechanical, medical, legal, and financial elements. To truly understand the events of a car accident and resolve disagreements, an expert in any of these areas can provide a well-informed testimony.
In your car accident case, you may be assisted by:
- Accident reconstructionists
- Financial professionals
- Forensic investigators
- Cellphone record analyzers
Why Would I Need the Help of an Expert Witness?
Expert witnesses can help in any instance in which there is uncertainty or debate on the details of your case. For example, if you claim the car accident happened because the other driver switched lanes and hit you, but they claim you hit them, an accident reconstructionist can offer some insight into what actually happened. Accident reconstructionists are investigators who are able to determine the speed and motion involved in a car accident just by evaluating the collision damage. Similarly, medical professionals can testify about the cause of an injury and if your account of the events correlates with your physical condition.
