Millions of people each year suffer injuries in preventable accidents that happened because another party acted in a negligent manner. Such incidents may include car accidents, workplace accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more. Victims who are injured in such accidents are usually entitled to substantial compensation for their resulting losses, which may include medical expenses, lost wages from time missed from work, pain and suffering, future estimated losses, and more.
However, in order for accident victims to win their case and receive proper compensation, they must show that the other person was, in fact, negligent in some way and that negligence caused their injuries. Making this showing and proving the causal connection is often more complex and challenging than one may imagine and, for that reason, an injured accident victim should always enlist the help of an experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorney with their case.
One of the most important resources to which a personal injury lawyer has access is the expert witness. An expert can analyze the scene of the accident and any physical evidence or witness accounts to help recreate the accident and identify the cause. If the cause of the accident was a negligent act, an expert report can help settlement negotiations with the other party. Should your case go to trial, an expert’s testimony is often very persuasive in convincing a jury that the other party was negligent and that you should recover for all of your losses. Using expert witness testimony and reports helps your attorney present the strongest case possible in your favor and will help you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
