If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another, then you probably want some sort of compensation for your damages. After all, those damages can be quite extensive, affecting your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. While a personal injury lawsuit might help you recover the compensation you need, these cases aren’t always as clear-cut as they may seem. That’s why you need to understand the facts of your case, the law, and how to build a legal strategy that supports your position.
The role of an accident reconstruction
An accident reconstruction can be a great way to build your case. An accident reconstruction utilizes the rules of physics and other sciences to determine how an accident occurred. To reach a conclusion that is issued in a written report, an expert in the field analyzes a number of things, including tire marks, resting position of the vehicles involved, the weather, road conditions, road sign positions, and eyewitness accounts. The conclusions reached by one of these experts can be especially helpful when it’s not obvious how the accident occurred. Therefore, it can help you in your efforts to impose liability and recover compensation.
