Building a personal injury case involves a combination of legal strategy, evidence gathering, and witness testimony. Depending on the details of the case, witnesses may include drivers and bystanders in a car accident case, coworkers in a work accident case, and others who can provide insight into the events of an accident.
Expert witnesses are people who are well-versed in a field that is relevant to the facts of a case. Although these witnesses do not see the actual events of the accident, they can provide an educated perspective that nobody else can. The testimony of experts can significantly substantiate your claim.
Medical experts can demonstrate how an injury occurred and provide insight into the medical care that an injury victim may need. Establishing the cause of an injury is the root of personal injury litigation, so the input of medical experts is essential. A medical expert can substantiate your injury claim, prove the link between the defendant’s negligence and your injuries, establish a timeline, and offer additional medical knowledge on the case.
In a personal injury case, an accident reconstructionist can establish the events of an incident and demonstrate how the events lead to the plaintiff’s injuries. These types of experts commonly testify in car accident cases, but can also assist with claims involving work accidents, defective product accidents, and premises liability cases. An accident reconstructionist can describe the events of an incident when witness testimony or surveillance footage is not available.
To determine a fair compensation amount following an injury, a financial expert may weigh in on a case. Financial experts may include accountants, economists, and people who work with the finances of relevant industries, e.g. the healthcare industry. These experts can calculate the damages that a plaintiff has already sustained because of their injury, and forecast any future damages that the injury victim may be responsible for. Enlisting the help of a financial expert can ensure you are properly compensated for all of your damages.
