Accident Reconstruction in a Texas Car Accident Injury Case 

 Posted on December 13, 2022 in Car Accidents

Irving Car Crash Injury LawyerTexas law allows individuals who are injured in car accidents to seek monetary compensation for damages. Expenses like vehicle repair or replacement, medical bills, and lost income caused by missed work may be recoverable through a personal injury claim. Compensation for non-financial damages like pain and suffering may also be available.

However, bringing a successful car accident injury claim is much easier said than done. The at-fault party's insurance company will do everything it can to avoid large payouts. Accident reconstruction is one tool a personal injury attorney may use to demonstrate the elements of a personal injury claim and recover compensation.

What is Accident Reconstruction?

Many car crashes turn into a "he said - she said" situation. Each party may claim that the other party is at fault for the crash. Accident reconstruction is a process of analyzing the evidence from a motor vehicle crash to determine what happened and which driver was at fault. It involves many different methods, including examining skid marks, measuring debris fields, taking photographs or videos of the scene, interviewing witnesses, and investigating damages. A trained accident reconstruction specialist will analyze this evidence to develop an opinion about how the crash occurred.

Why is Accident Reconstruction Important?

Accident reconstruction plays an important role in a Texas car accident injury case. It helps to establish liability, which can be difficult to do given that most car accidents occur in seconds and there are often no witnesses. An attorney may use the findings of an accident reconstructionist to demonstrate fault and strengthen his or her case. The accident reconstruction professional may also be called upon as an expert witness during a personal injury trial.

Being involved in a serious car accident has the potential to dramatically alter a person's life. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a crash, you know this from first-hand experience.

Accident victims may be able to recover financial compensation for their medical bills, vehicle damage, lost income, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. However, to recover compensation, they must prove that the defendant was responsible for the crash. Accident reconstruction can help provide the hard evidence needed to present a strong argument.
