Many cases stem from unforeseen accidents, the causes of which may be very difficult to determine. It is therefore often necessary to consult with an experienced accident reconstruction expert witness to find out how an accident may have occurred, who or what was at fault, and how it could have possibly been prevented. There can be a variety of unique sources that cause an accident, so it is imperative to utilize the knowledge of an accident reconstruction expert that is right for your case.
A common type of accident may involve autos, motorcycles, bicycles, or pedestrians, so a background in vehicular mechanics and engineering could be integral to the case. An accident reconstruction expert may have experience with crash tests, collision analysis and simulation, human factors, human kinetics, occupant restraint systems, injury analysis, causation analysis, crash data retrieval, traffic signal design, as well as studies on traffic impact, parking, and safety.
Such experts attempt to recreate the scene by assessing the aftermath of the accident, which involves examining medical records, autopsy reports, injuries, vehicle inspections, photography, video, court exhibits, mapping, seat belts, airbags, brakes, product defects, tires, and various other forms of evidence. While accident reconstruction often involves traffic incidents, it can be utilized within other contexts, such as industrial, fire, or construction accidents.
The cause and aftermath of an accident can be very complex, so an expert on accident reconstruction is a vital aspect of accident-related litigation.
