Technical Experts Can Be Crucial to Win a Personal Injury Case
While they are not always needed, in some personal injury cases a technical expert can make all the difference.

They Can Establish the Circumstances of a Motor Vehicle Accident
If you are involved in a car accident, we will likely work with an expert who can reconstruction the accident. They can establish what happened in the moments leading up the accident. This is essential because even if there are eyewitnesses, these actions often occur very quickly. An expert can look at the evidence such as skid marks, the final positions of the vehicles, points of impact, and other factors to determine who hit who, the probable speed, and other important factors.
They Can Analyze the Conditions Around a Slip and Fall Accident
If your case involves a premises accident, a technical expert might be very important. If you are lucky, the case will be obvious and undeniable. However, if it is more subtle, the expert can show how the owner of the property failed to comply with reasonable standards and that their choices led to your injury. For example, they can speak about surface maintenance, lighting conditions, or traction. This will be an expert in building, construction, and local ordinances and codes.
They Can Quantify the Long-Term Cost of Your Injury
Sometimes, we can calculate the cost of an injury fairly easily by looking at medical costs, lost wages, and other economic indicators. However, in the event of severe injuries that will have life-long consequences and costs, you will need an economic expert who can determine the cost of future medical bills, nursing care, physical therapy, and more. They will take into account the likely inflation, rises in wages, and other factors.
If you do not have this expert there, even if you show how you came to the numbers you came to, you are likely to find at least one jury member who feels you are asking for much too much. Your economic expert can show their work, point to other cases, and convince the jury that your ask is reasonable.
