If another driver's recklessness or negligence caused you to sustain serious injuries in a car accident, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to get financial compensation for your losses.
But in order to accomplish that, you must demonstrate that the other driver was at fault for the collision. You'll be in the best position to receive the highest possible financial compensation if you establish a case with strong proof of your claim. By providing information that helps establish the other party's liability, an accident reconstructionist can be called in to support your injury claim.
We will explain this option further. However, you must consult with an experienced car accident lawyer who can help put together your case. For years, Brandon J. Broderick has helped clients injured in car accidents get the justice they deserve.
Accident Reconstruction: What Is It?
Accident reconstruction analyzes all relevant data and accessible evidence to determine the cause(s) of an accident, as well as the sequence of events that led up to it. Experts are usually called in for accident reconstruction, and will carefully review all available information to determine the cause. This evidence could include the following:
- Photos of vehicles, the crash scene, and injuries
- Police reports
- Witness accounts
- Mobile phone records
- The vehicle's "black box," which records various information
- Medical records
- Road conditions
The accident reconstructionist will determine specific actions that they believe led to the accident, such as: speeding, driving errors, defective parts, and/or hazardous road conditions.
The accident reconstruction report becomes an important factor in a personal injury case by assessing the available evidence and determining fault. They are frequently utilized as proof when making a personal injury claim in car accident cases involving catastrophic injuries.
What an Expert in Accident Reconstruction Can Do for Your Injuries Case
When the cause of the accident is unclear, liability for the accident is in doubt. In a case like this, you need to demonstrate that a malfunctioning or defective car part contributed to the crash, and an accident reconstruction expert can help. Accident reconstructionists are experts in a variety of areas, including physics, law enforcement, engineering, and specialist software. They will compile a report and/or a visual simulation of the accident after conducting an investigation into the collision.
If the reason for the accident needs a detailed explanation, a visual simulation of the accident may be extremely valuable. If a settlement cannot be reached and the matter must proceed to trial, visuals are also important.
How To Hire an Accident Reconstructionist
Your personal injury lawyer should be able to recommend and retain the services of an accident reconstructionist if your case would benefit from one, just as they would with any other expert witnesses that might be required. Using an accident reconstructionist will strengthen your claim with credible evidence and improve your chances of receiving the highest settlement possible.
Accident reconstructionists are commonly employed in auto accidents involving serious injuries and/or large claim demands. Insurance companies frequently hire or engage experts to support this position. When you submit a claim or lawsuit, it is in your best advantage to present the most compelling evidence available.
