Expert Witnesses in Auto Accident Cases

Expert witnesses are often necessary to prove each element of a plaintiff's or defendant's case following an automobile accident including liability, causation, and damages.

Eyewitnesses, or fact witnesses, can testify as to what they saw or personally experienced at an accident scene, but many issues must be established by an expert witness. Unlike eyewitnesses or fact witnesses, an expert witness is permitted to give their opinion based on their review of medical records and the evidence in a case. Your auto accident lawyer at Axelrod & Associates, P.A. has access to a wide range of reputable and reliable experts who can assist in proving your case, including:

Medical Experts

An independent doctor may assist by reviewing your injury and treatment and testifying as to their conclusions. The type of doctor retained to assist in your case will depend on the types of injuries and issues involved in your treatment.

Accident Reconstructionist

An accident reconstructionist uses in-depth collision analysis and reconstruction to identify the causes of a collision and to describe how the collision happened. The reconstructionist will usually visit the scene of the accident to take measurements and photographs. They will gather and review evidence including data recovery from the vehicles, photographs and video, witness statements, accident and incident reports, and deposition testimony before providing their opinion as to the cause of an auto accident.

Economists

An economist helps to determine a plaintiff's future lost earnings taking into consideration factors such as the plaintiff's age, life expectancy, length of time they were expected to work, inflation, future changes in interest rates, and other factors.

Vocational Rehabilitation Experts

When a client has been disabled because of an auto accident, a vocational rehab expert can help to establish what it will take to retrain the person to re-enter the work force, what types of treatment will be necessary to accomplish the goal of re-entry to the work force, and whether reasonable accommodations can be made in the workplace.

Meteorologists

When necessary, a meteorologist can help to establish the weather conditions at the time of your auto accident and what effect the weather had on your crash. Poor weather conditions are almost never an excuse for a driver's negligence, but, if weather conditions become an issue in an auto accident case, a meteorologist may be an indispensable witness.

Toxicologists

When the use of alcohol or drugs is a contributing factor in a car crash, a toxicologist can help to establish what a driver's blood alcohol or drug levels were at the time of the crash and what effect those levels may have had on the driver's ability to drive safely.
