What Does an Accident Reconstruction Expert Do?

accident reconstruction experts can help you win your claim

In some situations, a Buford car accident lawyer will tell you that they need to hire an accident reconstruction expert to prove your case. You know that hiring any type of specialist is expensive, so you wonder: what will this expert exactly do to help me win compensation?

In this article, we will explain how an accident reconstructionist is involved in a car accident claim and why their expertise is necessary. First, let us explain what they actually do.

What Is an Accident Reconstruction Expert?

An accident reconstructionist is a licensed professional with a background in physics, mechanics, mathematics and other related subjects, who can recreate accident scenes. They will provide both a visual rendering of how the accident most likely happened and a detailed report containing their expert opinion.

Also, accident reconstructionists can serve as expert witnesses in car accident lawsuits, answering questions, such as:

  • The speed of the vehicles at the moment of the crash
  • Whether both drivers had good visibility and could see each other
  • Whether the accident could have been avoided
  • If a defective car part or poor road conditions contributed to the crash

Now, let us explain how the expert will work after your attorney hires them.

1. Visiting the Crash Scene

If it does not involve traveling a long distance, the accident reconstruction expert will actually go to the accident scene. They will look at every relevant aspect:

  • The presence of traffic signals and if they are visible and work properly
  • The condition of the road
  • The lay of the road (if it is a curve and visibility could be limited)
  • Any factors that may have played a role in the accident

accident reconstructionists know how to inspect damaged cars

2. Inspecting Your Vehicle

Next, the accident reconstruction expert will perform a detailed examination of your wrecked vehicle. They will look at all the dents and damage in order to determine:

  • The point of collision
  • The angle of collision
  • Whether your vehicle caused the collision

After these steps, the expert will contact your Buford car accident lawyer to obtain the rest of available evidence and continue their work.

3. Analyzing Documentary Evidence

The accident reconstruction expert will examine all the available evidence carefully. They will need:

  • The police report
  • The photos and videos you took after the accident
  • The eyewitnesses’ statements
  • The medical records, including the diagnostic tests after the accident

These documents will help the specialist form their final conclusion and start preparing the video presentation and the report.

4. Presenting Their Findings

Finally, the accident reconstructionist will prepare an animated 3D presentation, showing how the accident most likely happened. At the same time, the specialist will write a report detailing their conclusions.

These materials will reach your lawyer, who will present them to the insurance adjuster, in a bid to reach an agreement regarding the settlement. If the insurer still refuses to settle, the attorney will instruct you to file a lawsuit. In this case, they will enlist the accident reconstructionist as expert witness.
