Motorcycle accidents can be more complex than you realize. They can involve multiple vehicles, and there can be a variety of factors that contribute to the accident in question. This can muddle a personal injury case and threaten your ability to recover the compensation you need and deserve. That’s why it’s imperative that you do everything you can to build a compelling case based on the facts and the law.
The importance of accident reconstruction
One way to support your case is to have an accident reconstruction conducted. Here, an expert applies the laws of physics to the facts at hand to determine exactly what caused the wreck and who is responsible. This expert will consider tire marks, road conditions, the weather, the vehicles’ resting positions, and eyewitness testimony as he or she conducts the reconstruction. At the conclusion of the investigation, a report will be generated that details the findings, which you can then use during negotiations and during trial.
Be prepared for contrary expert opinions
As helpful as an accident reconstructionist’s testimony can be for your case, it’s power can be diminished by the testimony of a defense expert whose opinion differs from your expert’s opinion. So, as you prepare your case you should anticipate who the defense will call as an expert and be prepared to counter his or her assertions. This means researching the expert’s background and reconstruction practices for weaknesses, and preparing questions for your witness that seek to head-off any defense arguments.
Diligently working to build motorcycle accident claims
A motorcycle accident can leave you with extensive damages that can affect you for a long time to come. Therefore, you can’t afford to give your personal injury claim a half-hearted attempt. To maximize your chances of success, consider working with a dedicated personal injury attorney who knows how to build strong cases and zealously advocate for those who have been wrongfully hurt in motorcycle accidents.
