What is Accident Reconstruction?

Aug 20, 2020 - Car Accidents

If you are someone who was recently injured in an auto accident, there is a chance your case may require accident reconstruction. Of course, after an injury, you should always contact an experienced Florida personal injury attorney who can work to help you win the compensation you need. However, sometimes, the outside assistance of an expert is required to give our firm the information we need to then move forward with your claim. Here are some of the questions you may have about accident reconstruction and how it may benefit your case:

What does an accident reconstruction expert do?

Essentially, after an accident, your personal injury attorney may enlist the assistance of an individual who is educated and trained in reconstructing auto accidents. This person will work to establish a chronological order of events that led up to, and ultimately caused your accident and your injuries. Some of the actions an accident reconstruction expert may take are as follows:

  • First, the expert will most likely visit the scene of the accident and/or review all pictures/videos of the accident. 
  • When visiting the scene of the accident, the expert will analyze any skid marks on the road, as well as any damaged property or debris left strewn about that point towards the potential point of impact, etc.
  • The expert will most likely inspect any damage done to vehicles and interview witnesses regarding how they saw the accident happen.
  • He or she may also review medical records regarding your injuries, as well as the police report filed at the scene of the accident. 

Why would I need an expert to reconstruct my accident?

There are several circumstances that may warrant accident reconstruction. Accidents often happen in a flash, and if you do not remember what happened and nobody was around to witness the accident, you will most likely need someone who can determine exactly who was at fault. Additionally, if both party’s vehicles are totaled, it may be hard to discern exactly who hit who first, as well as how the accident occurred. Furthermore, oftentimes, it is downright complicated to prove liability in certain cases, such as when various important pieces of evidence are missing. The bottom line is that an expert can help shed light on exactly how an accident occurred that may otherwise be considered a mystery.
