There are few things more stressful than being involved in an auto accident, especially if you were injured due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, these accidents often occur in the blink of an eye, which is why it can sometimes be difficult to prove which driver was at fault. In this case, accident reconstruction may be extremely beneficial to your case. Our Jacksonville personal injury attorney is here to help you through every step of the claims process, though hiring an additional expert to reconstruct your accident may provide us with the evidence we need to recover the compensation you deserve. Read on and reach out to our firm to learn more.
What is the purpose of hiring an accident reconstruction expert?
Hiring an accident reconstruction expert can benefit your case in many ways. To start, these experts are trained professionals who re-create auto accidents regularly in an effort to establish liability. When you hire an accident reconstruction expert, he or she will first go to the scene of the accident and examine any property damage, skid marks, or any other evidence left behind that may indicate liability. Additionally, the expert will analyze all photos and videos of the accident itself. Accident reconstruction experts also frequently inspect the vehicles involved in the accident, as the damage to each car may help prove which driver caused the accident. The expert may also speak with any witnesses of the accident to document their account of how it happened. Finally, accident reconstruction experts can analyze all medical records associated with your injury, as oftentimes, certain injuries are tell-tale signs of certain types of accidents.
Are accident reconstruction experts always necessary?
While these experts are not always necessary to prove liability in auto accident claims, the truth is, many scenarios may warrant their intervention. For example, if your accident wasn’t captured on video surveillance and no one was around to see it, you may require accident reconstruction to prove liability. In other cases, when both vehicles are totaled as a result of an accident, it can be difficult to prove who caused the accident, though a trained expert can analyze additional factors surrounding the accident to determine liability. Further, if you and the other driver were both seriously injured, you may not even remember the accident occurring. In this case, a reconstruction expert can work to shed some light on the circumstances surrounding your accident.
