Expert witnesses are incredibly valuable in car accident cases. Experienced professionals who can testify on behalf of your legal case can make it easier for the court to thoroughly understand the cause of your injuries as well as the costs they left you with. Expert witnesses must possess the unique training, experience, and education that extends beyond the general public’s experience.

Our experienced lawyers know how to obtain the best expert witnesses for your case. We regularly work with people who are specialists in their fields and who can provide you with testimony that proves your claim.

Types of Expert Witnesses

There are many different types of expert witnesses that may benefit your claim. Our lawyers have experience working with an array of professionals who can help us prove you deserve compensation.

We regularly work with the following:

  • Medical Experts – In many cases, medical professionals serve as expert witnesses who may help prove that you sustained a certain type of injury, a specific type of accident can cause your injuries, your injuries will likely cost you money in the future, and your injury has impacted your mental and emotional well-being.
  • Engineers – An engineer may provide information about the defective design of a vehicle and point out a manufacturing or design flaw that has prompted the malfunctioning of the vehicle. In addition, engineers have the knowledge necessary to demonstrate that a vehicle was maintained properly and was malfunctioning because of a driver’s reckless or careless acts.
  • Accident Reconstructionists – Accident reconstruction specialists evaluate crash force, vehicle speed, topography, vehicle visibility, and other details related to car accidents. In addition, they use high-end software to create animated versions of car accidents.
  • Economists – Economists may perform an analysis of a car accident victim’s financial losses. Lost wages, health and retirement benefits, and future lost earnings may all be determined by an economist.
