If you are someone who has recently been injured in an auto accident, such as a car accident, in the Washington D.C. area, there is a very good chance you now require financial compensation to heal. Furthermore, you should be entitled to this compensation, as long as our firm can prove that the other motorist is the liable party for the accident and the injuries you sustained. That being said, while it is our job to prove liability after an accident, we will often enlist the assistance of an investigator, or an accident reconstruction expert, to help us do so, especially if there is no security camera or surveillance footage present of the accident. Please continue reading and give our experienced Washington D.C. personal injury attorneys a call today to learn more about accident reconstruction experts and how they may help us help you recover the compensation you need to heal.
What is the purpose of hiring an accident reconstruction expert in Washington D.C.?
As you know, serious auto accidents frequently happen in a flash, leaving both motorists very little time to react, and, oftentimes, at least one of the motorists does not even have a chance to see the accident before it happens at all. Usually, this is the motorist who is not at-fault for the accident. Unfortunately, in this scenario, among others, if there were no security cameras taking surveillance at the time of the accident, or if there were no witnesses available to corroborate your claim, we may call in an accident reconstruction expert to take the following actions, among others:
- Before visiting the accident, the expert will most likely review and analyze all photos or videos taken of the accident or its aftermath. This includes any damage to your car, the other motorist’s car, or any property involved in the accident.
- Once the reconstruction expert visits the scene of the accident, he will physically investigate all aspects of the road and property involved in the accident, including skid marks on the road or loose debris due to the accident to try and determine exactly how the accident occurred and which motorist was at fault.
- If there were witnesses to the accident, the reconstruction expert will absolutely interview those witnesses and bring us their testimony verifying your claim.
- Finally, if you were injured in the accident, the expert will analyze the police report filed at the scene of your accident, as well as any medical documents concerning your injuries and how they happened.
