Expert Witnesses That Can Help Your Car Accident Claim
After a Florida car accident, a victim’s primary concern should be their health. Once you seek medical attention, you can consider filing a car accident claim against an at-fault motorist. Once you decide to file a claim, contact a skilled car accident or personal injury attorney to receive help with your case. A qualified lawyer can help you gather the evidence you need to support your claim. An attorney can also help you find witnesses who can help prove your claims. Witness testimonies are crucial to car accident claims; therefore, finding the right witness could be what is standing between you and the compensation you deserve.
Types of Witnesses in Car Accident Claims
The first type of witness that can help your car accident case is a lay witness. This type of witness testifies about what they saw on the day of the accident.
The second type of witness that can help your car accident case, and who is the main focus of this article, is an expert witness. An expert witness is a witness who relies on their experience in a particular field to provide much-needed in-depth information about a victim’s case.
Below is a look at some of the expert witnesses your attorney can hire to help with your car accident claim.
Suppose the defense team finds it hard to accept that the severity of your injuries is as you claim it to be or that you sustained your injuries in the accident. In such a case, your attorney can hire a medical expert to help prove causation and the severity of your injuries.
Accident Reconstruction Specialists
Suppose liability is unclear in your car accident case because you were involved in a complex accident such as a chain reaction accident. In that case, an accident reconstruction specialist can help prove liability. Such a specialist can reconstruct your accident and determine each motorist’s actions that led to the accident. An accident reconstruction specialist can help demonstrate what or who caused your accident.
Proving economic losses such as lost wages might seem pretty straightforward, but, sometimes, people need expert witnesses to help prove such losses, especially when significant financial losses are involved. An economic expert calculates the value of a victim’s financial losses and pinpoints other losses a victim might have overlooked.
Cell Phone Records Specialists
If you believe that the other motorist was distracted at the time of your accident, a cell phone records specialist can help you determine whether the driver was using their phone at the time of the accident.
