It's known that any accident can be a life-changing experience for the victims involved. Combined with the resulting injuries and the struggle to pay mounting medical bills, the experience can be incredibly stressful and confusing. As a victim, you might not know how to proceed legally or with insurance providers. However, accident reconstruction can contribute hugely to personal injury claims.
What is Accident Reconstruction?
Accident reconstruction is an analytical process that specialists use to analyze motor vehicle collisions. It utilizes applied mathematics, science, physics, and engineering to examine the scene and vehicles involved and extract information that would help determine the factors leading to the accident. An accurately conducted reconstruction can assist you in selecting a likely sequence of events leading to the collision and subsequently help you decide on a course of action.
How Can It Help Your Personal Injury Claim?
The reconstruction process can yield information supporting a personal injury claim by creating forensic documentation of the accident. Personal injury claims often rely on establishing fault or negligence, and accident reconstruction can provide objective evidence and expert testimony to support the claim. Furthermore, reconstructing the accident is useful when insurance providers or legal teams dispute the damage claims.
What Information Is Collected During a Reconstruction?
Many factors need to be analyzed and considered when conducting an accident reconstruction. They include tire marks, road conditions, vehicle damage, and measurements taken from the scene. Trusted forensic specialists collect this information and create simulations to accurately represent what happened and show how it led to personal injury. This simulation can help identify fault and negligence and support your personal injury claim.
How Can You Use Accident Reconstruction in Court?
An important function of an accident reconstruction report is to present its findings as expert testimony. Attorneys use it to validate their argument on the sequence of events and determine liability, cementing the issues on the judge or jury. The judge and jury rely on this information and its accuracy when determining the circumstances of the accident and the level of compensation justified.
